The volunteer crew of St Davids RNLI all-weather lifeboat “Norah Wortley” undertook a five hour rescue of a 7.5m yacht which needed assistance about 13 miles west of St Davids Head. The lifeboat launched at 3.15pm on Wednesday 17th April to the 2-person crew of the yacht which had power failure and was unable to make headway under sail against the tide.
The lifeboat took about half an hour to reach the vessel which was then taken in tow to Milford Haven marina, arriving at 8.15pm. The lifeboat returned to station at 9.25pm. Crew: Coxswain Dai John, Mechanic Judd Kohler, Will Chant, Gareth Morris, Hal Richardson, Dan Jones and Pad Rees @rnli #rnli #towing #yacht #rescue #coast #sailing
