Haydn Miller requested to check safety of kayaker seen passing through Sker rocks in big swell . . . .

At 7pm this evening (19 August), whilst returning from the previous shout, Tenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat was requested by Milford Haven Coastguard to check on the safety of a kayak seen passing through the Sker rocks in rough seas.

The Coastguard had taken a call from the Deputy Launching Authority at the lifeboat station stating that the sea conditions were not really suitable for a kayak.

The lifeboat was soon alongside the kayaker and advised him to return to and stay in Tenby’s North Bay where it was more sheltered from the southerly swell.

The lifeboat then returned to station, arriving at 7.10pm.
