Criccieth-RNLI-lifeboat-assists-two-kayakers

Byline: At 3.00pm on Wednesday the 27th of August, 2014 volunteer crew members from Criccieth's RNLI lifeboat station were tasked to assist two people in difficulty near Morannedd Rocks, Criccieth.
Page Content: The casualties were reported as being in difficulty aboard their kayak a few hundred metres offshore, in choppy seas.  By the time the crew had mustered and launched the station's Atlantic 85 class lifeboat, Doris Joan, they had been thrown off their craft and were in the water.

The crew were quickly on scene and made sure both persons were able to swim ashore to be checked over by the awaiting Criccieth HM Coastguard team.
