French yacht runs aground on Battery Rocks off Penzance - Ivan Ellen to the rescue!

Both Penlee lifeboats were called out this morning to rescue a French yacht that had run aground off Battery Roks. At high water there are no visible rocks between the Jubilee Pool and the Gear Pole that marks the southern extent of the reef.  The yacht was towed to safety back to Newlyn to be assessed for damage to the hull.
