Criccieth-lifeboat-responds-to-reports-of-dinghy-in-difficulty-near-Portmeirion

Byline: At 11am on Tuesday the 13th of August, 2014, volunteer crew members from Criccieth’s RNLI lifeboat station responded to reports of a topper-style dinghy in difficulty near Portmeirion in choppy seas.

Due to the location of the dinghy, it was decided to launch the station’s smaller inshore rescue boat, Margaret a Nantw, from Porthmadog harbour.  The lifeboat was quickly on scene and located the sailing dinghy upstream from the original reported location.  The dinghy had been anchored ashore and left unmanned.  A search was conducted in the area to try an locate the vessel’s occupant, but no one was found.  As it was likely the occupant was ashore, HM Coastguard stood down the lifeboat and continued enquiries ashore.
