50 Years of Inshore Lifeboats

50 Years of Inshore Lifeboats

It will be 50 years in May 2017 since the crew of Beaumaris All weather lifeboat had to learn additional boating skills with the arrival of the first Blue Peter 2 lifeboat at Beaumaris. This was a D class inflatable and since then the station has operated four Blue Peter 2 lifeboats increasing in size from the original D class via the Atlantic 21 to an Atlantic 75.

The current Atlantic 85 lifeboat named Annette Mary Liddington was launched on her first service from the station in January 2010. She was provided by the generous bequest of Mr John Grover Liddington in memory of his mother and other donations to the Beaumaris Lifeboat Station Local Appeal. and is named after the mother of the donor who funded the major part of the cost of the lifeboat.

Lifeboat day action on July 27th

Lifeboat day promises to be a crowd pleaser with bouncy castles plus stands for the fire brigade and Coastguard, plus the RSPB. The lifeboat will be on the water and a joint exercise with the helicopter is planned for 3pm, services permitting.

Busy weekend for the lifeboat

The volunteer crew of Beaumaris Lifeboat today on a “shout” assisting Llandudno RNLI crew and its D Class lifeboat with towing a 40ft yacht that has broken down in Colwyn Bay.  The yacht was towed into Deganwy.
Beaumaris Lifeboat was called out three times yesterday but stood down on all occasions.  The first at 17:00 was for a kayaker at Penmon who had been rescued by a fishing boat and taken ashore by the time the lifeboat arrived.  The second incident at 21:50 was for a broken down boat in Menai Bridge but the crew were stood down just before they launched, and the final incident at 22:40 was to search for an inflatable with passengers on board off Caernarfon that was over 2 hours late returning.  The lifeboat was launched and was at Bangor Pier when they informed the inflatable had returned so the crew were stood down.

Three Peaks race yachts run aground


The volunteer crew of Beaumaris RNLI has been called out twice to assist contestants taking part in the Three Peaks Yacht Race, one of the oldest and most remarkable extreme multi-sport endurance races in the world which started yesterday, Saturday 15 June.
The first incident saw the crew paged at 21.11 last night to a yacht that had run aground off Caernarfon Bar.  The crew went to assist the yacht but as one of the rules of the race stipulates no outside assistance is allowed the race contestants decided to wait until they refloated. 
The second call out was today at 09.01 to another yacht that had run aground at The Cribben in the Menai Strait.  The yacht, Firedancer, was assisted off the rock by the lifeboat crew.
