Haydn Miller escorts vessel after safety concerns
Tenby's all-weather lifeboat was requested to launch at 9.50pm on Monday 18th July, following concerns for the safety of a vessel and its crew travelling between Tenby and Saundersfoot.
The volunteer crew were soon alongside the casualty vessel and the occupant informed them he intended to return the vessel to Saundersfoot, so the coxswain put two crew members aboard to assit him, before escorting the vessel around to the safety of Saundersfoot harbour.
The lifeboat then returned to station, arriving at 10.50pm.
