Criccieth-RNLI-lifeboat-reduces-four-persons

Byline: Shortly before 5pm on Sunday, 27th July 2014, HM Coastguard requested the launch of Criccieth’s RNLI lifeboat to assist a speedboat suffering from engine failure between Penychain Head and Criccieth.
Page Content: ​It was reported that a small privately owned boat was on scene, but unable to assist the casualty vessel.  The station’s Atlantic 85 lifeboat, Doris Joan, was promptly launched and found the stricken vessel due west of the Dwyfor estuary.  A tow was established and two persons bought aboard the lifeboat, leaving the other two on-board the casualty vessel.

The lifeboat towed the speedboat to Pwllheli Marina, arriving shortly after 6pm.  The rescued people and speedboat were placed ashore on the launching slipway.
This represented the station’s 15th rescue of 2014.  In total, 28 people have been rescued and one life saved, by the station’s volunteer lifeboat crew this year.
