Rhyl Lifeboat Crew Training
Written by Claire Carter on February 24, 2023
Earlier this month, Rhyl Lifeboat launched on a training exercise.
Rhyl’s RNLI launched the Shannon Class 13-34 Lifeboat – Anthony Kenneth Heard and later the Inshore D-class D-770 – Mary Maxwell on a dry, chilly Sunday morning.
Posting on their Facebook Page Rhyl RNLI to notify anybody wanting to come along to see the launch. The Shannon launched first at 10.15am followed by the Inshore at 10.40am.
Ash who walked to the Lifeboat Station from Towyn said he was excited to see the Shannon launch as he has been to watch the training of the RNLI since he was four years old.
He says his favourite part of the event is hearing the stations alarm sound, as it scares him – in a good way.
He walked from Towyn with his Mum and Sister who enjoyed seeing the “Big Boat”.
You can hear the amazing sound of the alarm below.
Both boats then returned to Rhyl Marina and 12.15pm for a crew change over before heading back out to sea for another two hours.
Returning back to the Lifeboat Station at 14.15pm where the crew washed down the vessel and re set the station ready for an emergency shout.
