Yachting & Boating World: The RNLI were called out to the scene following reports that the boat and skipper had gone missing.

 

A major search for a missing powerboat and its skipper was launched in the early hours of Saturday morning after a vessel crashed into a buoy in Cork.
 
The RNLI received reports that the vessel was missing after it collided with a channel marker buoy at 12.45am.

Volunteer crews attended the scene in the lower part of Lough Mahon shortly after the call.
 
Coast guard boats and shore teams also joined the search for the motorboat, along with two aircraft.
 
After extensive searches of the area, the motorboat and its slightly injured skipper were eventually located at a marina in Crosshaven and all rescue crews were stood down just before 3.30am.
