Two people were rescued on Tuesday evening after a yacht caught fire near the Malgrats islands in the area of Santa Ponsa.

The two jumped into the sea and were rescued by a British-flagged boat that was in the vicinity. A Coastguard boat went to the scene and doused the flames. A few minutes later, the yacht sank.

The Guardia Civil are investigating the circumstances.

It would not surprise me if there is an increase in the number of yacht fires over the next few months.
