Lifeboat press release
Tenby’s inshore lifeboat was launched at 6:20 p.m. on Wednesday, July 14, following a report that two teenagers appeared to be in trouble in a dinghy off Castle Hill.
The volunteer crew quickly reached the scene and took the teens aboard the lifeboat, where they were checked to ensure they did not need medical attention, before being returned to Tenby North Beach, with the boat.
With the injured safely on shore, the lifeboat was relocated.
