Salcombe RNLI launched in choppy waters and strong winds to rescue a vessel trapped on lobster pots.
It was the second call in a week for Salcombe RNLI, whose All-weather Lifeboat (ALB) The Baltic Exchange, was launched to reports that a 45-foot yacht was stuck on lobster pots five nautical miles south west of Salcombe.
A spokesperson for Salcombe RNLI said: "Once located, the crew were able to free the yacht from the pots and proceeded to tow the vessel into Salcombe Harbour for underwater inspection."
You can see a video from the rescue on Salcombe RNLI's Facebook page: HERE.
