Angle RNLI's inshore lifeboat alerted to help tender

Lifeboats News Release

Angle RNLI’s inshore lifeboat was alerted on Sunday of last week (September 25) to assist a 2.5 metre tender, which was struggling due to the weather conditions, off East Angle Bay.

The D class lifeboat SuperG II was launched at 5.50pm and quickly located the tender, which had one adult and a child on board.

After transferring the occupants to the inshore lifeboat, a tow was rigged and the tender was taken to Angle’s Point House landing jetty, where members of St Govan’s Coastguard were waiting.

With the occupants and tender safely ashore, the lifeboat was released to return to her station, where she was rehoused at 6.18pm.
