The volunteer crew members of the RNLI Beaumaris lifeboat launched to take over the tow of a cabin cruiser from the Trearddur Bay lifeboat.

The Beaumaris Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington with her volunteer crew launched at 4.10pm on 28 December at the request of the UK Coastguard and proceeded to Abermenai Point where a rendezvous was made with the Trearddur Bay Atlantic 85 class lifeboat Hereford Endeavour.

The Beaumaris lifeboat and its volunteer crew then towed the casualty vessel to a mooring near Port Dinorwic Marina. Once the two crew aboard the cruiser advised that all was well, the Beaumaris lifeboat then proceeded back to her station.

The inshore lifeboat arrived back at Beaumaris at 5.50pm being refuelled and prepared for further service by 6.25 pm.

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
