A RACING yacht is being towed in to Levington Marina after developing rudder problems.
Harwich lifeboat was called to the stricken craft off the Suffolk coast earlier today.
Peter Dimmick, coastguard assistant with Thames Coastguard, said the Daikin was being pulled by another yacht called Hol Matro.
He added: “We took the initial call at 10.50am. The Hol Matro was towing another vessel called the Daikin which was being towed because eit had suffered a broken rudder.
“Harwich lifeboat proceeded to assist and is towing the 12 metre Daikin with ten people on board. It is being taken into the Suffolk Yacht Harbour at Levington on the Orwell where it will be met by the Felixstowe coastguard team.”
The 12 man Hol Matro was supplied with extra fuel and is making its own way to Woolverstone Marina.
