DetailsTenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat was launched at 4.40pm on Monday 26th April, after the Coastguard received a call from members of the public stating that they could see a Canadian-style canoe that had become swamped between Stackpole and Broadhaven.

The volunteer crew made best speed to the area, 10 miles west of Tenby, where they soon spotted the canoe off Stackpole Head. The occupants had managed to bail the vessel out as best they could, but were making slow progress paddling, so they requested a lift back to Stackpole quay.

Once aboard the lifeboat, they were checked to make sure they didn’t need medical attention, before being dropped into Stackpole quay, where they were met by members of St Govans Cliff Rescue Team.

The lifeboat then returned to station, arriving at 5.45pm
