Largs Lifeboat rushed to the aid of two people on a 33-foot yacht which suffered engine failure on the Clyde.

The volunteer crew at Largs lifeboat station were paged shortly before 10.45pm on Sunday, May 21.

The skipper of the yacht had notified the coastguard that they required assistance after their engine failed near Innellan.

A RNLI crew member was placed on board to assist in setting up a tow line and the yacht was towed to Kip Marina.

On arrival at the marina, the lifeboat crew and yacht were assisted in berthing the vessel by members of Greenock Coastguard rescue team.

Largs lifeboat operations manager John Griffiths said: "The yacht's swift actions when realising they had issues and the ability to give a precise location enabled the call out to be completed in prompt manner."
