DetailsTenby’s RNLI all-weather lifeboat was requested to launch at 1.30am on Tuesday 30th March after a 43ft sailing vessel suffered electrical and steering failure off St Govans Shoals.

The lifeboat was quickly on the water and together with Angle all-weather lifeboat, made best speed to the last known position of the casualty vessel. A cargo vessel had also heard the Mayday and made its way to the scene.

With the Haydn Miller just 4 miles off the casualty vessel, the crew of Angle lifeboat reported that they had reached it and were preparing to take it in tow back to Milford Haven. Haydn Miller was stood down and returned to station, arriving just before 3am.
