DetailsTenby's RNLI all-weather lifeboat was launched for its first shout of the year, shortly after 12.15pm of Thursday 23rd January, following a mayday call from a kayaker in difficulty between Tenby and Caldey.

The volunteer crew were quickly on the water and headed for the position of local vessel ‘Triton II’ which had also responded to the mayday and located the kayak about ¼ mile north east of Caldey’s Paul Jones’s Bay.

Once alongside, the lifeboat crew took the casualty aboard. Once he’d been assessed, he was found to be feeling unwell , along with his kayak, was taken back to Tenby to be assessed by Paramedics.

Once back at the station, the casualty took a shower to warm himself up whilst he waited for the arrival of the Ambulance
