Lifeboat press release
At 1.19pm on Saturday 21 May 2022 volunteer crew members of the Beaumaris lifeboat received a page from the UK Coastguard Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Center at Holyhead to assist a broken down four meter motor boat .
The Beaumaris Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington with her crew of volunteers launched at 13:34 and headed for Caernarfon.
The lifeboat was advised that the vessel had been taken in tow by another vessel, but the tug was having difficulty with the tow. After making sure everything was fine with the two adults on board. an assessment was made by the coxswain as to the best course of action. It was decided for safety reasons that the boat should be towed to the safety of the nearest anchorage or berth and a tow was quickly established.
The vessel was towed to her trailer by Moel Y Don and when this was completed the lifeboat was released by the Coast Guard to return to her station at Beaumaris to be
refueled and cleaned according to the Covid 19 instructions in force. Once this operation was completed, the crew left the station.
