Porthcawl and Barry Dock Lifeboats launched to a 53ft yacht which had made a MAYDAY call as it was taking on water south of Nash Point.

Porthcawl lifeboat arrived on scene first placing two volunteer crew members aboard with a salvage pump who assessed the situation onboard and managed to stem the ingress with the pump.

Upon the arrival of the larger Barry Dock Lifeboat our Atlantic 85 transferred two crew members from Barry Dock Lifeboat onto the casualty vessel before recovering our two crew members.

The Barry Dock Lifeboat took the yacht under tow and back to Barry Dock for the skipper to carry out repairs.
