Royal Navy Rescues Stricken Army Yacht

Hmm, from how I read it, the Andrew sailed up, had a butchers and decided it was too much hassle before giving the yacht some wood from which to fashion a rudder and making best speed for the nearest G&T. 'Rescued' my perfectly formed gluts.

Is the little rubber boat on the left the mighty HMS Severn? Im suprised all the matelots on board didnt surrender to stranded boat incase they were in ROI waters.
Despite being 75 nautical miles away, HMS Severn sprang into action and sailed through the night to reach the Spirit of St George which had been left drifting at the mercy of wind and tide.
And this necessitated a press release?
But I suppose it's good to read that the RN still sails through the night.

the trio built a jury rudder and also supplied the yacht with a means of long range communications .
Adopting the latest RN tradition the Navy trio handed over their mobile phones before going back to their own ship.

On the plus side the Captain didn't surender his ship to the yaughts occupants so well done RN.

I thought the navy turned up then was quickly re-tasked as they are little short of ships and sailing time at the moment. wont be long before the victory is doing the carribean drug patrols.

or blockading stanley, one of the two :)
