A British yacht had to be taken into tow Wednesday morning by Salvamento Marítimo and brought into Marina del Este.
The occupant, an 85-year-old loan yachtsman, literally called for help when he was not far off the beach, according to Salvamento Marítimo.
The rescue launch Salvamar Hamal, together with a RIB (LS Argos) from Cruz Roja were sent to his aid.
Upon reaching Marina de Este the British man was given a medical check up on the spot, without it being necessary to take him to the Almuñécar medical centre.
