Toe Head/Glandore Coast Guard was launched this afternoon from Castletownshend slipway to rescue a vessel in distress.

A 36ft Yacht, Harvest Moon, with two crew onboard had broken down and was adrift off Black Rock near Castlehaven Harbour.

The vessel was taken in tow and brought safely to a mooring in Union Hall Harbour, where another voluntary unit of the Toe Head/Glandore Coast Guard was in attendance.

Both people on board the vessel were unharmed.
