A village headman in Trang spotted a drifting yacht belonging to an Australian tourist and managed to pull it ashore with his long-tailed boat on Friday.

Chiwin Longkarn, head of Moo 2 village in Tambon Tashe at Haad Samran beach, said he was in his boat after catching crabs when he spotted the yacht.

He said he pulled up along the yacht and found an Australian tourist with three Thai women.

The yacht's engine had broken on the way from Satun to Phuket amid a storm with two-metre-high waves, so he offered to pull it to Moo 2 village.

Chiwin spent about two hours pulling the vessel.
