St Davids RNLI lifeboat crew were requested to assist a yacht in trouble on Thursday, March 21.

All-weather lifeboat Norah Wortley launched and headed in lumpy seas shortly before 6 pm three nautical miles north of St Davids head where a 41 foot yacht with gearbox issues and two people on board was drifting.

Upon assessment, deputy Coxswain Mike Phillips made the decision that undertaking a tow was necessary and the safest way to assist the casualties.

The towed vessel was returned to the nearest safe and suitable port at Fishguard harbour where Fishguard lifeboat crew provided St Davids volunteers with a welcome coffee break.

The lifeboat returned to station at St Davids at 11:30pm
