Beaumaris lifeboat assists a vessel one mile South West of Caernarfon.
The volunteer crew members of the R N L I Beaumaris lifeboat received a launch request at 8.58 am pm on Saturday 30 June 2019 from the U.K Coastguard, to go to the assistance of a vessel with an engine problem near Caernarfon.
The Beaumaris lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington launched at 9.05 am and proceeded to the vessel.
Upon arrival it was deemed prudent to tow the boat with her six adult occupants to a recovery point in the Menai Straits.
The craft was towed into the Menai Straits to a location where facilities where available to recover the vessel from the water.
The lifeboat was then released from service by the U.K. Coastguard and returned to the lifeboat station at Beaumaris arriving at 10.25 am being recovered, refuelled and prepared for her next service by 10.55 am.
