Two yachts have been towed to safety by the Isle of Man lifeboat after getting into trouble near breakwater rocks.
The craft were brought back to Port Erin Bay on 3 June after problems with strong winds and engine failure.
An RNLI spokesman said it was the second emergency call-out for yachts during the weekend.
On Saturday night at about 21:30 BST crews were alerted after a catamaran with five people on board experienced engine failure.
There were no injures in the incident which happened between Holyhead and the Isle of Man.
