Oban lifeboat launches to aid stricken yacht

OBAN RNLI lifeboat launched on Saturday afternoon in response to a mayday call from a yacht close to Lismore lighthouse.

The Mora Edith MacDonald was requested to launch by Stornoway Coastguard at 3.30pm to help the boat, which was experiencing steering problems close to the lighthouse.

Shortly after the lifeboat arrived, the yacht managed to engage its emergency steering and was making its way towards Dunstaffnage Marina, near Dunbeg.
