Quotes

"The lifeboat arrived on scene thirty minutes later and quickly took the stricken vessel under tow back to Newlyn harbour."
At 3.28pm Jo Owen tweeted: "Beach red flagged. Helicopter and lifeguards working hard to keep everyone safe. Amazing work #rnli #woolacombe"
"He seems to have done all the right things in what must have been a very frightening situation. He launched the liferaft correctly and had everything he needed to keep safe, including a lifejacket, flares and water,” "Fortunately, the sailor was uninjured, but it was very sad to see his yacht burn and then sink so quickly. We understand the boat was his home and he was sailing from Iceland to Holland, but it looks like he’s lost nearly everything."
"The surf conditions were heavy today and the RNLI have dealt with a number of incidents in the north Devon area" police said
