A major air, land and sea search for a skipper, whose empty boat beached at Brighstone on Saturday night, has been called off for a second day.
A member of the public alerted emergency services after finding the small yacht 'Brigand' with its engine running and one of its sails still up at 5:15pm on Saturday.
An extensive air, land and sea search was carried out involving two coastguard helicopters, Yarmouth and Mudeford RNLI lifeboats, Freshwater inshore rescue and Lymington, Needles, Southbourne and Swanage coastguard teams.
It is thought the sailor had set off from Poole on Saturday morning, with the intention of sailing to Hayling Island.
After searching for nearly five hours, coastguards called off their search just after 11pm on Saturday. A further search began at 7am on Sunday, with five teams including two lifeboats from Freshwater scouring the coastline of the Isle of Wight.
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency said that sadly nothing had been found and the search for the Brigand's skipper was called off at around 3:45pm on Sunday.
