Video: Dramatic Rescue Caught On Camera

The volunteers of the Penlee RNLI inshore lifeboat faced a six metre swell and a southerly gale on Wednesday 17 October as they attempted to rescue a yacht crew who had gone aground in the entrance to Penzance harbour. 

Despite the prevailing conditions and one engine stopping, the lifeboat team managed to get a tow rope on to the stricken vessel and eventually pull it to safety.
