The Aran Islands RNLI volunteer crew was called out on Saturday evening last, to come to the aid of a sailor whose yacht got into difficulty.

The all-weather lifeboat was launched at about 5.30pm Saturday evening, as a yacht with one person onboard experienced engine difficulty north-east of Straw Island.

Once alongside the yacht, the lifeboat crew established a tow line and towed the yacht back to Kilronan Harbour.

Aran Islands RNLI coxswain Tommy Dirrane is urging anyone planning a trip at sea to always wear a lifejacket, carry a mobile phone or means of communication, and let someone ashore know where you're going and when you're due back.
