Kinsale RNLI were called out this morning to assist a Yacht returning from the Fastnet Race held over the weekend.
The Fastnet Race is held every two years over a course of 608 nautical miles (1,126 km). It is organised by the Royal Ocean Racing Club of the United Kingdom.
The race is named after the Fastnet Rock which the race goes round.
RNLI boat Miss Sally Anne Baggy II assisted the yacht back to Kinsale from just south of the Old Head this morning.
The Irish-flagged A35 'Jump and Shout now' was brought to Kinsale by the RNLI.
