A WOMAN was rescued after her boat almost collided with a buoy today.

Lifeboat crews from the RNLI towed a 23-ft gaffer away from Norris Buoy after a mooring rope became wrapped around the yacht’s propeller.

The ketch-rigged Yarmouth 23 yacht was taken to Shepards Wharf Marina, Cowes, by Solent Coastguards at just after 11am.
