BEMBRIDGE Lifeboat was this afternoon (Tuesday) launched to aid a single-handed yachtsman in trouble in the English Channel.
The offshore lifeboat was launched at 3.25pm, 11 minutes after receiving a call from coastguards.
The lifeboat made its way to the 36ft yacht in the English Channel more than seven miles south of Niton which suffered engine failure in winds of up to force five.
