The Beaumaris Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington with her volunteer crew launched at 11.55 am and proceeded to the casualty vessel.

Once on scene and having ensured that all was well with the two aboard the craft the lifeboat arranged to tow the casualty vessel to Victoria dock, Caernarfon.

Once this task was competed the lifeboat was released from the service by the U.K. Coastguard to return to her station at Beaumaris. She arrived at 2.00 pm she was refuelled and cleaned under the current Covid 19 instructions. When this had been completed the crew could leave the station.
