Haydn Miller launched after dinghy spotted drifting off St Govans . . . .

Tenby’s RNLI all weather lifeboat was launched shortly before 6pm on Friday 26th May following a report from a member of the public that a dingy was drifting off St Govans.

The lifeboat was on scene some 20 minutes later and the volunteer crew quickly located the small tender-type dinghy just off New Quay Bay.

The dinghy was brought aboard the lifeboat and after careful examination, the crew determined that it hadn’t been recently occupied and had probably broken loose from a passing vessel and been blown towards land by the onshore winds.

With this in mind and with nobody reported missing, the lifeboat was stood down by the Coastguard and returned to station, arriving at 7.15pm
