costa del sol marina

A British sailor had to be rescued after he went to sleep in the Costa del Sol resort of Marbella and woke up more than 100 miles away after his anchor broke.

The 65-year-old sounded the siren on his yacht after climbing out of bed to discover he was near rocks and off a beach he didn't recognise.
He was told after being helped to shore by firefighters that he was in Cadiz, 100 miles away from the spot where he had anchored hours earlier.


The unnamed Brit declined medical assistance and headed for a nearby hotel, leaving his yacht which ran aground on La Caleta beach in the centre of Cadiz's old town in the care of police who kept watch on it to avoid locals looting it.
The OAP at the centre of yesterday morning's bizarre drama, whose yacht is called Miss Brenda, has not been named.

Police said they were told by the sailor after his rescue that he had anchored the previous night in Marbella and had woken up 'disorientated' after crossing the Strait of Gibraltar.
The spot where he was helped to safety is 110 miles away from the upmarket Costa del Sol resort.
It was not clear this morning if the yacht had been removed so it could be assessed for damage.
