Rhyl RNLI volunteers assist speedboat with two on board
A speedboat with two people on board had recently launched from Rhyl harbour, but had experienced engine problems at sea, about half a mile from the end perch marking the entrance to the harbour.
The vessel and it's occupants were handed over to the harbour master, and the lifeboat crew returned to station at 1.05pm.
Key facts about the RNLI
The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and, in a normal year, more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
