A sailor who got into trouble off the Portland Race yesterday asked his partner to call the coastguard.
Rescuers made contact with the man who was in a 30ft yacht with his dog Elvis.
He managed to navigate heavy seas and make his way back to Weymouth Harbour, monitored by Portland National Coastwatch.
