DetailsTenby's RNLI inshore lifeboat was launched at 8.25pm on Friday 30th August, following a report to the coastguard that a sailing dinghy appeared to be in difficulty after capsizing in strong winds off Tenby's South beach.

The volunteer crew were quickly on scene and spoke to the two occupants, who decided they'd attempt to get ashore themselves.

The lifeboat stood by as the dinghy made it ashore safely, before returning to station.
