DetailsTenby's RNLI all-weather lifeboat Haydn Miller was launched on service at 5.45pm on Tuesday 27th August, following a call to the Coastguard from the occupants of a 16ft speedboat, reporting engine failure off Chapel Point on the south side of Caldey Island.

The volunteer crew made best speed to the south of Caldey and quickly found the disabled vessel anchored off Chapel Point.

After a request from the owners, the vessel was taken in tow towards Saundersfoot Harbour.

Once outside Saundersfoot, due to the state of the tide, the Y Boat was launched from the stern of the lifeboat to tow the casualty vessel the short distance into the harbour.

After retrieving the Y Boat, the lifeboat then returned to station, arriving at 7pm.
