Abersoch RNLI Kept Busy

It has been a relatively busy mid-April for the RNLI volunteers at Abersoch with three call-outs in four days.

On Wednesday, April 14, Holyhead Coastguard reported that an unoccupied kayak had been seen 4 miles south west of Pwllheli, and at 9.20 am requested the launch of Abersoch RNLI’s inshore lifeboat (ILB) , to take part in a search, for the casualty, already involving Pwllheli RNLI’s two lifeboats.

After two hours, and the completion of thorough co-ordinated search patterns conducted by the RNLI volunteer crews, and after nobody had been reported missing, Holyhead Coastguard called everyone back to station.

At 4.10pm on Friday, April 16, Abersoch RNLI’s ILB was launched to help a broken down powerboat between Porth Ceiriad and Porth Neigwl.

The 18ft vessel and its two male occupants was towed back to the Harbour Beach.

And at 12.25pm on Saturday, Aprii 17, Abersoch RNLI’s lifeboat was launched once more to reports of a broken down power boat off Ynysoedd Gwylan south east of Aberdaron with two people on board.

On scene, an RNLI volunteer crew member boarded the casualty vessel and was able to restart its engine.

Then the ILB escorted the craft back to the Warren.
