DetailsTenby's all-weather lifeboat was requested to launch at 2.40pm on Sunday 23rd August, following a 999 call to the Coastguard stating that a kayak and paddleboard were in difficulty and drifting towards rocks off Broadhaven South, 10 miles west of Tenby.

The volunteer crew were quickly on the water and made best speed to the scene.

On arrival, the crew soon spotted the kayak and paddleboard cut off on the beach of a small bay near Broadhaven. The Y Boat was launched and went in and brought the paddleboard, kayak and the 2 adults and 2 children that were on them, back to the Haydn Miller to be checked over. They were then dropped back onto Broadhaven beach, where they were met by members of St Govans Coastguard Rescue Team.

The lifeboat was then stood down to return to station.
