St Davids RNLI successful slipway trial launch at new station

St Davids RNLI took another step forward in their move to a new lifeboat station.
It was a historic day for the station and its volunteers on Thursday (21 July) as the Tamar class lifeboat Norah Wortley launched down the slipway from the new station at St Justinian's for the first time.
The lifeboat, which has been saving lives at sea from a temporary mooring in the Ramsey Sound while the new boathouse build has been progressing, entered her new home to launch five times during the day of slipway trials testing
