Criccieth-RNLI-lifeboat-in-search-following-discovery-of-abandoned-inflatable

Byline: At 1.10pm, volunteer crew members from Criccieth’s RNLI lifeboat station launched into rough seas following the discovery of an abandoned inflatable boat on Llandanwg beach.
Page Content: HM Coastguard requested the attendance of the station’s Atlantic 85 class lifeboat, Doris Joan after the local Coastguard team at Harlech responded to concerns about the boat.  It was unclear at the time what had become of the boats occupants.

As there was a possibility that any occupants could be in the sea, the lifeboat conducted a thorough search of the coastline.  Following a search lasting around an hour, it was confirmed that the inflatable boat’s owner had abandoned the vessel earlier in the week but had not notified HM Coastguard.  They were safe and well.  
The lifeboat returned to Criccieth for recovery and made ready for service​.
