Georgina Taylor launched after possible distress beacon spotted off Giltar . . . .
Tenby’s RNLI inshore-lifeboat ‘Georgina Taylor’ was launched shortly after 9pm on Sunday 14th October, following a report from a local fishing boat that they had spotted a possible distress beacon in the sea off Giltar.
The boat was soon on the water and the volunteer crew made best speed to Giltar, where the crew of the fishing vessel were illuminating the object with their lights.
After a quick examination of the object, it was clear to the lifeboat crew that the object, which was covered in reflective tape and had a flashing light, was in fact the top part of the North Highcliff cardinal mark which must have been detached by recent storms.
The item was taken aboard the lifeboat and returned to Tenby Harbour, to await collection by the relevant authorities.
The lifeboat then rehoused at 9.45pm.
