Rhyl Lifeboat rescues cabin cruiser
Once the lifeboat was on scene, a tow line was secured to tow the vessel back to Rhyl Harbour. Due to the ebbing tide and water becoming shallow in the harbour, Rhyl RNLI’s inshore lifeboat was requested to launch to take over the tow to the slipway in Rhyl.
The three persons on board were met with local coastguard officers and the Rhyl Harbourmaster to safely recover the boat. Both boats returned to station at 4.30pm.
