Sailors rescued off Dublin coast

The Dun Laoghaire lifeboat has today rescued two sailors at Dublin Bay.

Two dinghy sailors were brought to safety by the RNLI this afternoon, when they got into difficulties in strong winds.

The pair were training on a 49er skiff dinghy and departed the harbour mid-morning.

They had been attempting to return for two hours but repeatedly capsized close to the harbour entrance.

A concerned member of the public walking on the pier had kept the dinghy under observation for about 20 minutes before reporting the situation.

Neither crew member needed medical attention.
