Haydn Miller launches after kayak capsizes off Freshwater East . . . . .

Tenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat launched at 2.18pm today (31 May) after a kayak capsized off Trewent point near Freshwater East.

As the Haydn Miller was arriving on scene, the occupant of the kayak was being picked out of the water by the crew of the Manorbier Range Safety vessel Smit Merrion, who happened to be in the area. The casualty was then transferred aboard the lifeboat to be assessed before being brought ashore in Freshwater East where the Coastguard were waiting to meet him.

The lifeboat then returned to station, arriving back at 3.30pm.
