    Default Super swimmer's yacht in trouble

    Lifeboat tows Sean's back-up boat to safety

    A YACHT which was the support vessel for Sean Conway marathon swim had to be towed into Wick harbour after her engine failed the in bay.
    The Friday While was heading for the port when she got into trouble in a force 5-6 gale, yesterday. The yacht with one person on board followed Conway on his record-breaking challenge the length of Britain. He came shore at the finishing line at John O’ Groats to a hero’s reception, on Monday.
    Along the 900-mile route he braved cold water, jellyfish and sea sickness.
