Dad rescued by his daughter - and the crew at Porthdinllaen

Back in August 2019, Patrick and his daughter Morgan took a sailing trip together. For the last leg of their journey, they planned to sail from Bangor in Northern Ireland to Aberdaron in North Wales. But at 4am, Patrick woke Morgan up - something was wrong.

They were off course, and Patrick couldn't tell Morgan where they were going. She realised her dad’s speech was deteriorating – Patrick was having a stroke and in desperate need of assistance.

Find out what happened next – as told by Morgan and Patrick – in the video below:
