Angle-all-weather-lifeboat-is-the-busiest-in-Wales

Byline: RNLI Angle has topped the league with the busiest all weather lifeboat in Wales.
Page Content: Its Tamar class state-of-the-art lifeboat was launched on service 37 times last year and rescued a total of 40 people. This compares with 40 launches and 48 people rescued in 2013.

Long searches and tow-in operations meant that in 2014 the Angle crew spent more time at sea responding to emergencies than any other Welsh crew, with 536 hours spent on call out operations.

Some 24 of the operations were in darkness.

The station’s D-class inshore lifeboat was called out 8 times and rescued 4 people, bringing the total number of call outs last year for the station to 45 and the number of people rescued to 44.
