Beaumaris lifeboat receives her third service request of the schools half-term.
At 12.29 pm on Wednesday 26 October at the request of the U.K. Coastguard the volunteer crew members of the R N L I Beaumaris lifeboat were paged to attend a broken down fishing vessel located south of Puffin Island.
The Beaumaris Inshore Atlantic 85 Lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington launched at 12.35 pm and proceeded to the boat which contained four people.
Once on scene it was decided to tow the stricken craft to the beach at Llanddona where the Penmon Coastguard Rescue Team was in attendance.
Once this had been achieved the lifeboat and her volunteer crew returned
to Beaumaris by 2.15 pm being refuelled and made ready for further
service by 2.45 pm.
