Abersoch inshore RNLI lifeboat called to attend jetski adrift

Lifeboats News Release

The RNLI lifeboat was called to attend jetski adrift one mile out off the Warren.

Abersoch volunteers responded to the call to attend the jetski adrift with no one onboard approximately one mile off the Warren beach on 1 September 2017.

Within 10 minutes of the call from Holyhead Coastguard, Abersoch inshore lifeboat with its volunteer crew were afloat and heading towards the reported location of the jetski.

On arrival, the jetski was being attended by its owners and about to make its way back to shore. At this point Abersoch lifeboat was stood down and returned to station.

The RNLI would like to remind all jetski and boat users to ensure they have enough anchor line deployed to allow for conditions and the rise of the tide.

It is also a good idea to check the jetski/boat regularly to see if it has moved and that the anchor is holding.
