UK Coastguard paged Porthcawl RNLI’s volunteer crew following a report that a group of people on a kayak had got into difficulty close to Newton Point.
The charity’s Atlantic 85 lifeboat Rose of the Shires was launched on service with four crew onboard and arrived on scene locating the casualties on the rocks to the eastern side of Newton Point.
One of our crew went ashore to assess the situation and assist the casualties from the rocks to safety. Once it was confirmed all the casualties were safe and well the lifeboat was stood down by UK Coastguard and returned to station to be washed down and made ready for service.
