Lifeboat rescues motor cruiser off Llandudno
A motor cruiser with three men on board was brought to safety by Llandudno RNLI inshore lifeboat on Saturday (18/6) after it had broken down off Great Orme's Head.
As a result, Llandudno's inshore lifeboat was called out at 6:36pm; with the tide and wind conditions making a rapid rescue advisable the lifeboat quickly launched from the west shore, took the disabled cruiser in tow and delivered it to the safety of a mooring in the River Conwy.
