Criccieth-lifeboat-launches-to-stricken-jet-ski

Byline: At 4.00pm on the 16th of August, 2013 volunteer crew members from Criccieth’s RNLI lifeboat station launched to assist a stricken jet-ski which had been spotted drifting towards rocks near Morannedd by a station Helmsman ashore.

The station’s Atlantic 85 class lifeboat, Doris Joan, promptly launched and was quickly alongside the jet-ski.  The craft, which had earlier set off from the beach at Criccieth, had two persons on-board.  The jet-ski had been towing an inflatable ring when its towing line had become lodged in its impeller leaving it without power and adrift.
 
The lifeboat’s crew bought both people on-board, recovered the inflatable ring and established a tow with the jet-ski.  All were returned to Criccieth for recovery.
 
 
ENDS
