Georgina Taylor tasked on first service from temporary lifeboat station . . . .

At 4.35pm on Tuesday 31st October, the crew of Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat were paged following a report that a kite surfer seemed to be in difficulty off Tenby’s South beach.

Five minutes later, whilst the volunteer crew were on the shoreline preparing to launch, they noticed the passenger vessel Caldey Abbey II approaching the beach. A kite surfer jumped over the side and then made his way ashore.

Before returning to station, the crew chatted to the surfer, who confirmed he’d been the one in trouble and was in no need of medical assistance.

Tenby Coastguard Rescue Team were also in attendance.
