Rhyl-RNLI-assist-yachtsman-with-engine-failure-in-Rhyl-harbour

Byline: Rhyl harbourmaster was supervising a yachtsman who was shifting his vessel from a mooring in Rhyl harbour to the slipway, to be recovered for the winter, at 10.42am on Thursday 26th November.
Page Content: As the man was turning his yacht towards the slipway, his engine failed. He was swept across the harbour and was in danger of being trapped under the new Pont -Y-Ddraig pedestrian bridge. He managed to get a line on a mooring buoy, and was held against the opposite harbour wall. 
The harbourmaster contacted Holyhead Coastguard by radio, and the volunteer crew were paged. The inshore lifeboat was launched into a moderately choppy sea, and made it’s way to the harbour. The lifeboat crew came up on the vessel, and managed to tow it away from the sea wall, and then took it across Rhyl harbour to the slipway, where the boat was recovered.
As the sea was quite rough off the station, the lifeboat was recovered at the slipway in the harbour, and was returned to station by road at 11.42am.
