TWO DINGHY SAILORS were rescued by the RNLI Dun Laoghaire lifeboat this afternoon after they got into difficulty in strong winds on Dublin Bay.
The pair were trying to return to the harbour for two hours but their boat repeatedly capsized close to the harbour entrance.
A concerned member of the public walking on the pier reported the situation to the Coastguard.
The all-weather lifeboat was launched at 12.20 pm, due to the deteriorating conditions and moderate visibility, and the casualty boat was towed to Coal Harbour slipway.
Neither crew-member needed medical attention.
