On Saturday morning the coastguard paged the crew to an inflatable with a small outboard engine that had encountered difficulties and whilst under tow were notified of another small speed boat with engine problems in the same area.

Later that afternoon reports came in to the coastguard of a boat that had broken down near church in the sea and the volunteers were tasked to recover a Maxim 16ft speedboat.

All three boats were towed back to Trearddur Bay by the Charities Atlantic 85 ‘Hereford Endeavour’.
