Borth RNLI lifeboat rescues Two children on Paddleboard in Offshore winds
At 2:45 on Thursday afternoon, 21 April, Borth inshore lifeboat was tasked by HM Coastguard Milford Haven to reports of two children on a Paddleboard in Borth Bay.
Upon arrival the two children were taken on board the lifeboat. It was found that the paddleboard was partially deflated, making it difficult for the children to make headway, and this too was taken on board.
