Lifeboat crew rescues yacht in a gale

A British offshore lifeboat was launched in gale-force winds and 10-foot seas, to aid a yacht reported to be in serious trouble. The 22-foot sailing vessel was pitching powerless in heavy swells, more than three miles southeast of the entrance to Shoreham Harbour. The yacht's initial distress calls had gone unheard.
