Falmouth Coastguards help sailor stuck on rocks
5:00pm Wednesday 21st August 2013 in Cornwall
A sailor on a yacht that ran aground on rocks at Par has been rescued thanks to help from Falmouth Coastguards.
The 26ft (8m) Osprey ran aground on Killyvarder Rock at the entrance to Par docks, and after Falmouth coastguards were "overwhelmed with 999 calls"saying red flares were shooting into the sky, an RNLI lifeboat crew launched to help the lone sailor.
The yacht, and its uninjured skipper, was safely brought into Fowey in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
