Tenby’s inshore lifeboat rescues 3 people cut off by the tide
Tenby’s RNLI inshore lifeboat Georgina Taylor was launched shortly before 5.30pm on Tuesday 26 April following a report to Milford Haven Coastguard from three people stating that they were cut off by the incoming tide between 1st Point and Waterwynch.
The volunteer crew began their search at the end of North Beach and quickly found the casualties on rocks between 1st and 2nd Points. They were taken aboard the lifeboat and checked over to make sure they didn’t need medical attention, before being dropped onto the North Beach where they were met by members of Tenby Coastguard.
