Holyhead RNLI Lifeboat Rescues Boat with Electrical Problems

The volunteer RNLI crew at Holyhead were called into action at 3pm yesterday (25 August) to assist three people on board a 15ft boat which got into difficulties north of the Skerries Lighthouse.

When the all-weather RNLI lifeboat arrived on scene, the boat was attached to a lobster pot float. The RNLI crew took the men on board and attached a tow to return to boat to the safety of Holyhead harbour.

Ray Steadman, Lifeboat Press Officer at Holyhead says:

‘There wind conditions were Force 6 with good visibility and moderate to rough seas.’
