Haydn Miller launched after 9 metre cabin cruiser suffers engine failure 5 miles south of Caldey Island . . . .
Tenby’s RNLI all weather lifeboat was launched at approximately 4.15pm on Monday 22nd May following a report from the skipper of a 9-metre cabin cruiser that he’d suffered engine failure 5 miles south of Caldey Island.
The lifeboat made best speed towards the reported position, arriving on scene just 15 minutes after launching.
Once the lifeboat was alongside, the skipper of the casualty vessel, which had four persons onboard, confirmed the vessel had lost all power and requested a tow back to Tenby. The volunteer crew then set up the tow and began the trip back to Tenby.
On arriving back at Tenby, the casualty vessel was put on the lifeboat’s outer moorings and the occupants taken aboard the lifeboat, which then rehoused at 17:45pm.
