Georgina Taylor launched after body board found floating offshore . . . .

Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat launched at 2.20pm today (31 August) after a body
board was found floating off the Giltar Point navigational marker.

The volunteer crew quickly on scene and located the body board.

As there was nobody with the board, the crew needed to make sure that the owner
wasn’t trouble. With the westerly wind, it was decided that the board was most likely
to have come from the Lydstep area and could have ended up where it was with a
combination of the wind and also the incoming tide.

The lifeboat crew searched the
rocks and caves between Giltar Point and Lydstep bay and then along the shore at
Lydstep.

With nothing found and nobody reported missing, Milford Haven Coastguard stood
the lifeboat down and it returned to station, arriving at 3.15pm
