Haydn Miller requested to launch after walker gets cut off by tide . . . .
Tenby’s RNLI all weather lifeboat was requested to launch by the Coastguard at 16:45pm today (2 February) following a report from a walker that he was cut off by the tide between Waterwynch and Monkstone.
The all-weather lifeboat was requested as opposed to the inshore lifeboat due to the big south easterly swell on scene that would make a rescue by the much smaller craft too dangerous.
As the crew were assembling and preparing to launch, the casualty made a further call to the Coastguard to state that he’d managed to climb the cliff to safety and was making his way along the coast path towards Waterwynch.
The lifeboat was then stood down and the crew returned home.
