Criccieth RNLI Lifeboat launch to stricken vessel
At 9.00am on Friday the 19th of April, 2019, volunteer Crewmembers from Criccieth’s RNLI Lifeboat Station were tasked to a 25ft power boat which had suffered engine failure approximately 1.5 miles south of Criccieth Castle.
Once the stricken vessel had been returned to safety, the Lifeboat returned to Station and made ready for service.
