Trearddur Bay and Beaumaris RNLI lifeboats launched to stricken vessel
Trearddur Bay and Beaumaris RNLI lifeboat volunteers were involved in assisting a vessel with engine problems.
The volunteer crew members of the RNLI Beaumaris lifeboat launched to take over the tow of a cabin cruiser from the Trearddur Bay lifeboat.
The Beaumaris Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington with her volunteer crew launched at 4.10pm on 28 December at the request of the UK Coastguard and proceeded to Abermenai Point where a rendezvous was made with the Trearddur Bay Atlantic 85 class lifeboat Hereford Endeavour.
The Beaumaris lifeboat and its volunteer crew then towed the casualty vessel to a mooring near Port Dinorwic Marina. Once the two crew aboard the cruiser advised that all was well, the Beaumaris lifeboat then proceeded back to her station.
The inshore lifeboat arrived back at Beaumaris at 5.50pm being refuelled and prepared for further service by 6.25 pm.
