Beached yacht brings out community spirit

An experienced sailing couple saw their bad luck turn to good fortune in a British seaside community.

When the engine on their 42-foot boat failed, they attempted to enter a tricky harbor under full sail in strong wind and surf. The missed the mark and wound up on a sandy beach.

That's when an experienced lifeboat crew and the helping hands of passers-by joined to write a happy ending to the incident.
