A man climbed on to the TSS Earnslaw early yesterday but bolted when he triggered a security alarm.

A spokeswoman said the man tried to get into the boat about 4am and set the alarm off.

He made a quick exit after first throwing a life ring into Lake Wakatipu, from the Queenstown Gardens side of the historic boat.

It was recovered from the water yesterday morning.

There was no damage and nothing stolen.
