The Cowes RNLI lifeboat has been launched to assist a boat in distressed this evening in Osbourne Bay. The volunteer crew were ordered to launch just after 8.20pm to a boat called Jalepeno. It is understood that no one is hurt onboard but the vessel has issues with the engine.
The yacht had engine issues and anchored. The Cowes lifeboat was tasked by the Coastguard to take the vessel under tow to the safety of Cowes harbour.
