Lifeboat called out to help yacht
The Lerwick lifeboat was called out in the early hours of Sunday morning after a yacht began having problems in the Fair Isle Channel.
The vessel, which had four people onboard, suffered problems with her sail shortly after 5am.
A stand-by boat took her under tow towards Sumburgh until the lifeboat arrived on the scene and took over.
She towed the vessel to Lerwick in a lengthy operation which took until around 4pm to complete.
