As reported, no one was injured in the incident. “Sailors from the burning boat were picked up safe and sound by a nearby yacht,” the statement said.

Despite the firefighting action, the yacht began to take on water and almost completely sank – only the bow was above the surface. “The partially sunken vessel was towed away from the navigable route so that it would not endanger other sailors” – MOPR informed.
