Four rescued from stricken yacht off Moelfre

Four people have been rescued from a stricken yacht off Moelfre.

The privately-owned 75ft Sunseeker Predator ran aground at Porth Neigwl at around 1pm on Saturday lunchtime and began taking in water after reportedly crashing into rocks.

RNLI crews from Moelfre and Beaumaris were called out to pump out water from the yacht before it was towed into Beaumaris Pier, where it was beached. The two Anglesey crews and coastguard teams from Moelfre and Penmon were also helped by the the new Shannon Cross lifeboat from Llandudno, while it was en-route to Conwy.

The four people on board were taken ashore unharmed and the vessel was taken to Gallows Point for repairs on Sunday.
