DetailsTenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat was launched at around 10.15am on Tuesday 22nd September, after a report that two paddle boarders had been spotted in difficulty in the water off Broadhaven.

Upon arrival at Broadhaven, the volunteer crew quickly spotted the two casualties clinging to Church Rock offshore, having struggled to make way against the tide.

The Y-boat was launched and went into the rocks to rescue both the paddleboarders and their boards. After checking the casualties didn’t require medical assistance, they were taken into the beach, where they were met by members of St Govans Coastguard Rescue Team.

The lifeboat then returned to station, arriving at 11.25am.
