A YACHT with two people on board is being towed to safety after it began drifting onto rocks.
The vessel, named Getaway, put out a Mayday call at 3.30am this morning.
It had suffered engine failure and was drifting onto rocks in Grutness Bay, Shetland.
A local fishing vessel initially towed the yacht off the rocks, Shetland Coastguard said.
Lerwick RNLI all-weather lifeboat then took over and began towing the vessel back to Lerwick.
