Penarth RNLI respond to yacht in difficulty
At the request of Milford Haven Coastguards, Penarth’s Atlantic lifeboat was launched Monday 12 August, shortly after 3:15pm.
Once safely moored the lifeboat was able to return to station shortly after 5pm and was refuelled and made ready for service. Crew members returned to their homes, and workplaces to either catch up on work or get back to family life.
