Tasked by UK Coastguard following a report that there were people in the water along with a Stand Up Paddleboard being swept out to sea off Ogmore By Sea. Both the charity’s Atlantic 85 lifeboat Rose of the Shires and D Class lifeboat Super G II were launched.
As the crew arrived on scene they located the casualties who had all managed to make their way back to safety onto the beach. A crew member went ashore to check that all was well and no further medical attention was required. The lifeboats were stood down and made their way back to Porthcawl.
The health crisis has hit our income hard. Lockdown halted the fundraising events we rely on to power our lifesaving service. Our volunteer crew have remained ready to launch 24/7 throughout the coronavirus pandemic. To support us with a donation visit: Porthcawl RNLI Lifesavers’ Fund 2021.
