A broken down drifting speedboat had to have a helping hand from Tenby RNLI’s lifeboat crew.

The all-weather lifeboat was requested to launch shortly before 6pm on Sunday, May 19, following a report from a speedboat stating they had broken down off Giltar and were drifting towards the rocks.

The volunteer crew were soon on scene and quickly located the casualty vessel with another boat standing by. The boat was taken under tow, back to Saundersfoot.

Once at Saundersfoot, due to an insufficient depth of water in the harbour for the Haydn Miller to enter, the y-boat was launched to take over the tow.

With the casualty vessel now safely alongside, the lifeboat was stood down to return to station.
