A YACHT toppled on its side in knee deep water with waves crashing into its deck.  

It was a sight to behold on Coffs Harbour's Jetty Beach today. 

The visiting vessel named Badger broke its moorings and ended up beached in shallow water. 

Water Police were called and after a couple of hours were able to tow the yacht back out to deeper waters.
