Beaumaris Atlantic 85 Inshore Lifeboat

The volunteer crew of the Beaumaris Inshore Atlantic 85 Lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington launched the lifeboat at 3.05 pm proceeding to the location given for the vessel.

When the lifeboat arrived the vessel had already been taken under tow by another craft.

The crews of both vessels wished to continue with the tow in its existing format, therefore in case of any problem arising the lifeboat crew decided to remain with the boats and escorted both of the craft into Conwy marina.

Once this task had been completed the lifeboat returned to her station at Beaumaris by 4.45 pm being refuelled and prepared for her next service call by 5.15 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.
