A FAMILY in a chartered yacht was rescued by an Isle of Wight lifeboat crew today (Saturday).
The Cowes RNLI Lifeboat was called to help the family of four, and their dog, shortly after 1pm, when they ran into difficulty at Lepe Spit, near the entrance to the Beaulieu River.
Not only had a rope become entangled in the propeller of the 35ft Islana, the anchor could not be raised from the seabed.
The lifeboat crew cut the anchor free and towed the yacht to Shepards Wharf, Cowes.
Despite increasingly choppy conditions, the crew then returned to collect the anchor, which could have posed a danger to other sailors.
