UK Coastguard tasked Porthcawl’s volunteer RNLI crew to assess the situation with a vessel that was reported to have suffered engine difficulties off Porthcawl’s breakwater. The relief D Class lifeboat, Super G II was launched on service. Once on scene the helm made the decision that undertaking a tow was necessary and the best way to assist the casualty. The casualty vessel was towed in an alongside tow and taken into the marina where it was placed onto a berth.
