Yacht gets pinned under barge by tide

Posted on

Yesterday evening a small yacht sailing yacht was spotted by the Yasam Rose pinned by the tide underneath the head of two barges moored overnight on Vic Dock Buoy.       Yasam Rose informed London VTS who in turn called the Predetor 2 which was operating between North Greenwich and Trinity Buoy Wharf.

Predetor 2 went to the aid of the vessel and quickly removed the 2 persons onboard and passed them over to the Tower Lifeboat which arrived soon after along with the PLA’s Barnes.      The yacht was towed clear of the head of the barge by the Barnes and taken to Greenwich Yacht Club.
