Llandudno lifeboat launches to assist kayaker who capsized in Great Orme cove

LLANDUDNO Lifeboat launched to assist kayaker who capsized in a cove.

Lifesavers were alerted by Holyhead Coastguard at 1.08pm on Sunday, June 13 and asked to launch and proceed to the area near the Pier and Pigeon’s Cove on the Great Orme.

Llandudno’s RNLI inshore lifeboat Dr Barbara Saunderson made her way to the location quickly.

The casualty was able to re float his kayak and re-join his friends who had been monitoring his situation offshore.

The lifeboat then returned to the Llandudno Lifeboat Station to prepare for future launches.

A spokesperson for Llandudno Lifeboat said: “This turned out to be a relatively straight forward service, we were happy to find the kayaker was ready to continue with his activity and re-join the group he was with.

“They were all well prepared and had dealt with the situation as sensibly as they could. We were also grateful to a local vessel who had remained on location to monitor until the lifeboat arrived.”
