RHYL lifesavers have had another busy period as the warm weather continues.

The volunteer RNLI lifeboat crew were called out on Monday, July 28 at 1.50pm following a request to launch by Holyhead Coastguard.

They went to assist a broken down, 18 foot day boat that was drifting close inshore off Splash Point, Rhyl with two adults and two children onboard.
The crew took the vessel in tow and towed it back to Rhyl harbour, returning to station at 3pm.

On July 30 Rhyl beach lifeguards reported a Jetski broken down in Rhyl harbour, and drifting under the new pedestrian footbridge.

The inshore lifeboat was launched within three minutes and the crew made its way to the harbour and found the jetski with its occupant, wedged against the harbour railings.

The crew then towed the jetski back to it's launch point in the harbour.
