A Rockingham resident’s yacht was left metres above the water after striking a reef.

A ROCKINGHAM woman said she is relieved to be home after her family’s yachting holiday up north went ‘horribly wrong’.

Carolyn Knight said the yacht she was in hit a reef and within minutes was three or four metres up in the air.

After being rescued by a passing boat, Ms Knight waited about seven hours for the tide to raise the boat off the reef before heading to Broome for repairs.

Check back soon to hear more from Ms Knight.
