Tenby RNLI lifeboat crew assist police in recovering boat . . . .

Tenby RNLI’s all-weather lifeboat was requested to launch at 10.30am on Sunday (26 June) to assist Dyfed-Powys Police.

The Police wanted to recover a 17ft sailing vessel heading from Saundersfoot Harbour towards Worms Head so requested the assistance of the lifeboat.

Tenby RNLI’s Tamar class lifeboat Haydn Miller was soon heading down the slipway with two police officers aboard and made best speed towards the last known position.

The volunteer crew quickly located the vessel about four-and-a-half miles south east of Saundersfoot Harbour.

The lifeboat crew attached a tow line to the vessel and it was towed back to Saundersfoot and reunited with its owner.

The lifeboat then returned to station, arriving at 12.10pm.
