Tenby’s relief all-weather lifeboat launched after report of 2 kayakers in difficulty . . . .

Tenby’s relief RNLI all-weather lifeboat launched at 1pm today (Sunday 12th November) after report of 2 kayakers in difficulty at Trewent Point, Freshwater East.

The lifeboat was on scene 15 minutes later and the volunteer crew quickly spotted the casualties on the rocks.

The Y-boat was then launched with two crew members aboard and proceeded into the rocks where the casualties were checked over. Luckily, they were not injured, just stranded on the rocks after getting into difficulty on their kayaks.

The casualties were taken aboard the Y-boat and into the beach at Freshwater East where they were me by members of Tenby Coastguard Rescue Team. The Y-boat then went back to retrieve the kayak from the rocks and dropped it to the beach, before returning to the all-weather lifeboat.

With the casualties now safely ashore, the lifeboat was stood down and returned to station, arriving at 2.10pm.
