Two shouts on busy evening for Tenby’s lifeboats
Whilst out on exercise with the inshore lifeboat at 5.30pm on Saturday 17th June, Tenby’s all-weather lifeboat was tasked to head to Freshwater East after a report of four boys cut off by the incoming tide.
The Y-boat was launched and due to the swell going into the rocks, picked each of them off one by one, before dropping them aboard the all-weather lifeboat, where they were assessed and warmed up. They were then dropped back ashore by the Y-boat, where they were met by members of Tenby & St Govans coastguard teams.
