Both Tenby lifeboats launched after vessel thought to be in danger

Both of Tenby’s RNLI lifeboats were launched tonight (26th July) after a report from a member of the public that a small wooden boat was rowed out of Saundersfoot harbour and had not been seen returning.

The all-weather lifeboat was launched shortly before 10pm with the inshore lifeboat being requested to launch shortly after.

Both boats carried out a search of the whole of the Saundersfoot bay area using radar, night vision and thermal cameras, whilst coastguard teams searched shore side.

With nothing found and nobody reported missing, both boats were stood down and returned to station, arriving at 11.40pm.
