Lifeboat Rescue: Today’s Walk 3 June 2013

As we were walking back along Spittal Prom this afternoon we saw the Berwick upon Tweed lifeboat towing a yacht back into the Tweed estuary.

It was a bit surprising to witness a rescue on such a calm day, but maybe the lack of wind was the issue if the yacht had engine trouble.
