As the crew of the Atlantic 85 lifeboat made their way back to Porthcawl from the earlier launch to Ogmore by Sea they were flagged down by a windsurfer who had suffered equipment failure with a broken boom in Newton Bay. The casualty was taken onboard the Atlantic 85 lifeboat along with his equipment and dropped back into the beach at Newton.

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.
