BOTH Falmouth RNLI lifeboats were launched this afternoon after a yacht ran aground.
The boat got into difficulties just across from Falmouth harbour by Trefusis Point, near Flushing.
The lifeboat crews reported that the yacht was refloated shortly before they arrived.
The boat had damaged her stern however and was towed back to harbour by the all-weather lifeboat. The incident happened just after 3pm.
