Three sailors assisted by RNLI off Ireland.

Larne RNLI Rescues Three Yachtswomen After Yacht Gets into Difficulty off Antrim coast

From the article
"Larne RNLI rescued three people late last night (Friday 29 July) after their 6m yacht got into difficulty off the Antrim coast.

The three women were on passage from Norway to the Caribbean having come through the Caledonian canal, and were heading to Belfast when they encountered problems."

Does anybody know this boat? Unless it's a misprint then 6m is a little one!
I'm wondering if they have a blog or facebook page to follow. It would be interesting to follow and see if it becomes an endurance test or an enjoyable adventure.

That's a Northern Ireland accent, not to say he is not a Trump refugee.
