The Lizard Lifeboat

Saturday 24th July 2021

The Lifeboat launched at 12.10pm today tasked to nearby Kynance Cove to assist a small dinghy with 3 people on board who it was thought may be having difficulty in returning to the beach? Mullion Coastguard were also in attendance and had been watching the dinghy when it was decided that a closer inspection was needed to make sure the occupants were safe. On arrival at the scene RNLB Rose launched her Y-boat which proceeded to the dinghy to ensure it was in fact capable of safely returning to the shore, which it duly did as “Rose” kept watch. All ended well with a possible problem safely averted – Many thanks to our colleagues from Mullion Coastguard Team.
