Couple's Yacht Stranded On Solent

A couple from Southampton had to be rescued by lifeboat crew on Thursday afternoon after they became stranded in the Solent.

They had set off from Hamble heading over to the Isle of Wight when the yacht's engine failed and they couldn't raise the sail up.

The pair were planning to meet their son for lunch on the island when it happened.

By the time the lifeboat reached the yacht it had drifted to off Egypt Point, Cowes.
