Georgina Taylor launched after report of people cut off by tide at Ragwen Point . . . .

Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat Georgina Taylor was requested to launch for the 2nd time in the evening at 6.35pm on Monday 7th August after a report that two people were cut off by the tide at Ragwen Point, Marros.

The lifeboat was quickly on the water, with the volunteer crew making best speed to the scene, some seven miles north-east of the station. The casualties had reported that they were 10 metres above sea level so Coastguard Rescue Helicopter 187 was also tasked to the scene in case a winch was required. Tenby and St Govans Coastguard Rescue Teams were also in attendance.

On arriving on scene, the crew gave the coastguard an update on the casualties, confirming that they were some distance up the cliff. The lifeboat was requested to provide safety cover until Rescue 187 had arrived and winched the casualties to safety.

With the casualties dropped in a field at the top of the cliff by the helicopter and no longer in danger, the lifeboat was stood down and returned to station, arriving at 8pm.
