Gorsaf Bad Achub Porthdinllaen

Latest Shout

19th August 2015

The John D.Spicer was launched today at 1300 to a lone fisherman in a 12 foot rowing boat, approx 1.5 miles North West from Trefor. The lifeboat located the gentleman in his rowing boat (with no outboard engine), that had drifted out to sea, in wind force 6 conditions and poor visibility. The man was transferred on board the lifeboat, and was returned (along with the rowing boat) back to Trefor. The lifeboat returned to the Station in Porthdinllaen at approx 14.30.


Lansiodd y John D.Spicer am 1 o'r gloch prynhawn heddiw i bysgotwr unig mewn cwch rhwyfo 12 troedfedd o hyd, tua 1.5 milltir i'r Gogledd Orllewin o Trefor. Canfuwyd y dyn yn ei gwch rhwyfo (heb injan allanol arni), a oedd wedi drifftio allan i'r môr, mewn gwyntoedd grym 6 a gwelededd gwael iawn. Trosglwyddwyd y pysgotwr ar fwrdd y bad achub, a'i ddychwelyd yn ôl i Drefor - gan dowio'r cwch rhwyfo. Dychwelodd y bad achub yn ôl i'r Orsaf ym Mhorthdinllaen erbyn 14.30.
