Criccieth RNLI Lifeboat launches following reports of a wind surfboard adrift
At 10.00pm volunteer Crewmembers from Criccieth’s RNLI Lifeboat Station launched to an adrift wind surfboard adrift near Haven Holiday Village, Pwllheli.
Once on scene, the Crew recovered the board and began a search of the area. However, as the search commenced HM Coastguard received a call from the board’s owner informing them that it had been lost earlier in the evening. With all information corroborated, the Lifeboat was stood-down. The Crew thanked the owner for reporting the loss to HM Coastguard.
