Lifeboats paged at 08:23 by Belfast Coastguard to reports of a sailing yacht which had run aground at Shane’s castle.

Once on scene it was established the yacht was anchored and all onboard where safe and well. 

Lifeboats returned to base, washed, refuelled and ready for service. 

Many thanks to the member of the public who raised the alarm.
