Haydn Miller launched after kayak capsizes at Swanlake Bay . . . .

Tenby’s all-weather lifeboat was launched at 5.45pm on Thursday 16th August following a report that a kayak had capsized off Swanlake Bay, leaving two people in the water.

The crew made best speed to the scene, some six miles West of Tenby. Whilst on their way, news came through that both casualties had managed to get to safety, with one swimming ashore and the other climbing a cliff and both were now with the Coastguard.

The lifeboat was tasked to recover the kayak if possible to prevent further calls from concerned members of the public. Once recovered, the kayak was brought ashore at Freshwater East by the lifeboat’s ‘Y Boat’.

The lifeboat was then stood down and returned to station, rehousing at 7.10pm
