The yacht was only about 20 metres off Playa San Cristóbal when disaster struck, necessitating the rescue of the two people aboard.
The incident, which occurred at 16.50h, developed as the yacht was trying to find shelter from the Poniente wind (blowing from the West).
Thanks to its proximity to the shore, the rescue did not prove difficult.
We would like to thank infocostatropical for the use of the photo; their photographer had been out taking photos of the yacht earlier in the afternoon.
