UK Coastguard tasked Porthcawl RNLI’s volunteer crew following a report that two swimmers were in difficulty at Nash Point.
The charity’s Atlantic 85 lifeboat, Rose of the Shires was launched on service and made best speed to the location. Upon arrival on scene it was soon established that both swimmers had managed to make it back to shore and required no further medical attention.
With all persons accounted for and safe and well the lifeboat was stood down by the Coastguard and returned back to the lifeboat station where it was made ready for service.
If you’re heading to the coast please visit a lifeguarded beach during lifeguard patrol hours and swim between the red and yellow flags. To find your nearest RNLI lifeguarded beach: https://rnli.org/find-my-nearest/lifeguarded-beaches
