Tenby’s all-weather lifeboat the Haydn Miller was requested to launch at 2.40 pm on Wednesday (July 20), following a report that a 30ft vessel had lost engine power 6 miles east of Caldey Island.

The volunteer crew made best speed to the last known position and soon found the vessel.

After checking it was seaworthy, the coxswain put two crew aboard to assist the occupant. A tow was then established back to Burry Port where, due to the depth of water being too shallow for the much larger Haydn Miller, Burry Port Atlantic 85 lifeboat was launched to take over the tow.

With the casualty vessel now safely in the hands of Burry Port lifeboat and the two Tenby crew members back aboard, the lifeboat returned to station.
