Beaumaris Atlantic 85 Inshore Lifeboat

The volunteer crew of the Beaumaris Inshore Atlantic 85 Lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington launched the lifeboat at 3.05 pm proceeding to the location given for the vessel.

When the lifeboat arrived the vessel had already been taken under tow by another craft.

The crews of both vessels wished to continue with the tow in its existing format, therefore in case of any problem arising the lifeboat crew decided to remain with the boats and escorted both of the craft into Conwy marina.

Once this task had been completed the lifeboat returned to her station at Beaumaris by 4.45 pm being refuelled and prepared for her next service call by 5.15 pm.
