Georgina Taylor launched after kayaks are swamped off Skrinkle . . . .

Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat launched at 3.30pm today (28 August) following a report that two kayaks had been swamped by the large swell off Skrinkle, throwing the occupants into the sea.

The volunteer crew made best speed towards Skrinkle and when they were about 1/2 miles sway, the all weather lifeboat, which was on its way to another shout, picked the kayakers out of the water before proceeding on their way.

The inshore lifeboat went alongside the empty kayaks, bailed them out and then towed them around to the shelter of Lydstep Bay where they were then met by the all weather lifeboat which had been stood down from its shout.

The casualties that were rescued from the sea by the all weather lifeboat were then transferred aboard the inshore lifeboat before being brought ashore along with their kayaks.

Both lifeboats then returned to station, arriving at 4.30pm
