Llandudno inshore lifeboat responds to emergency call for a capsized kayak

THE D Class lifeboat Dr. Barbara Saunderson launched shortly after a tasking alert from Holyhead HM Coastguard at 6.23pm on Sunday afternoon to search and locate two casualties who had been fishing from a kayak offshore.

The inshore lifeboat with three volunteer crew members commenced a search close to the shore from Craig y Don around to the base of the Little Orme’s head. After a period of searching the crew were relieved to find the two people who had been able to be reunited with their kayak.

Lifeboat Helm Bert Williams explained: ‘we were able to escort the kayakers slowly back to the safety of the beach at Craig y Don, however one of the casualties had become extremely fatigued and so we transferred him to our lifeboat to complete the return to shore.’
