Tenby’s relief all-weather lifeboat launched in the early hours of Christmas eve . . . .
Tenby’s relief RNLI all-weather lifeboat launched shortly after 3am on Christmas eve following a report from a man claiming to be stuck on an island near Rhossili Beach, 18 miles east of the station.
The volunteer crew made their way to the through moderate seas. Once on scene, due to the sea state and poor visibility, they were unable to get close so were tasked with illuminating the causeway from Rhossili Beach to Worm’s Head to enable Coastguard Teams to safely get across and continue their search.
Whilst they were doing this, Burry Port lifeboats were searching Burry Holms.
After a brief search, the casualty was located on Worm’s Head. He was cold and wet but otherwise unharmed.
He was escorted across the causeway before being checked over by paramedics.
The lifeboat was then stood down and returned to station, arriving shortly after 6am.
