Cardigan RNLI Lifeboats called out to help yacht in trouble
Both Cardigan Lifeboats were called out yesterday evening (29th December) at 8:33pm to help with a yacht reported to be having diesel problems.
It is believed that the yacht, with two males on board, was travelling from Criccieth to Swansea when they began to experience problems. The yacht was taken under tow and moored safely overnight at Cae Bach.
Both lifeboats returned to the station by 10:30pm.
