The callouts started on Tuesday 22 July with one for a kitesurfer off Towyn for the inshore boat, and a dayboat with 3 people and a dog towed in by the All-weather boat.

On Wednesday 23rd, there were 2 calls for the inshore boat to swimmers in difficulties and inflatables getting blown out to sea.

On Friday 25th, the inshore boat was again called out to an inflatable and 9 people cut off by the incoming tide. The adults were carrying the children in their arms when the lifeboat arrived to ferry them the 200m back to shore.

On Saturday 26th, the inshore lifeboat was again busy with 3 calls to swimmers in difficulty, persons stuck on rocks, and to personal water craft (Jetskis) getting too close to swimmers.

On Sunday 27th, the inshore lifeboat had 2 calls for missing children and a boat in the harbour with engine trouble, and the all-weather lifeboat was called 8 miles out to transfer an unwell worker from the offshore platforms in the windfarm.

Paul Frost, acting Coxswain says ” We have had a very busy time and also have been pleased to see our promenade being utilised to the full with the weekend’s Beach Fest. This has been hugely popular for the first time at Rhyl, and has proved what a valuable asset the beach and promenade are to the town. The volunteer crew of Rhyl RNLI were pleased to be a part of the weekend and hope this is the first of many such events. “
