Haydn Miller launched after yacht suffers engine failure five miles south of Caldey Island . . . .

Tenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat Haydn Miller launched at 4.10pm today (25th August) after a report from a 28ft yacht reporting that they had suffered engine failure five miles south of Caldey Island.

The lifeboat was on scene 20 minutes later and went alongside the yacht, which had been underway using the engine due to light winds when they got into difficulty.

After a request from the occupants, the vessel was towed back to Tenby and placed on one of the moorings in the bay. The yacht’s crew opted to stay aboard and were planning to get the vessel into the harbour and alongside the pier when the tide allowed so they could get their engine repaired.

The lifeboat then returned to station, rehousing at 5.30pm.
