Criccieth-RNLI-lifeboat-assist-jet-skier

Byline: At 1.00pm on Thursday the 20th of August, 2015 volunteer crew members from Criccieth’s RNLI lifeboat station were tasked to go to the aid of jet-skier who had fallen off his craft off Samson’s Bay near Borth y Gest.
Page Content: Once separated from his craft, the jet-skier had been washed quickly downstream. The station’s Atlantic 85 class lifeboat, Doris Joan was launched to search for the jet-skier; luckily a passing yacht had been able to pick him up shortly prior to the lifeboat’s arrival.  The lifeboat proceeded to reunite the jet-skier with the jet-ski, which had become lodged on a sandbank. 

Once on scene the lifeboat escorted the jet-ski back to Porthmadog.
