Sailors rescued off Dublin coast

Two dinghy sailors were brought to safety by the RNLI this afternoon, when they got into difficulties in strong winds.
The pair were training on a 49er skiff dinghy and departed the harbour mid-morning.
They had been attempting to return for two hours but repeatedly capsized close to the harbour entrance.
A concerned member of the public walking on the pier had kept the dinghy under observation for about 20 minutes before reporting the situation.
Neither crew member needed medical attention.
