DetailsThe second shout of the day came just three hours after the first, with the lifeboat launching at 7.30am, after a yacht reported difficulties south of Old Castle Head.

The volunteer crew made best speed to the reported position of the yacht, five miles west of the station.

Once on scene, the lifeboat went alongside the casualty vessel and the occupants requested a tow back to Tenby.

On arrival at Tenby, the yacht was moored in North Bay, before the lifeboat returned to station.
