At 13.00 today the Porthdinllaen boarding boat was launched to rescue a person who was blown out to sea in an inflatable dinghy. The person had tried to go out to his yacht in the bay, when his engine failed. Due to the strong wind and tidal conditions, he couldn't manage to row back to shore, and was swept out approx half a mile, to sea. The crew launched the boarding boat and recovered the person and dinghy in large swell, near the Porthdinllaen headland. By this time he had also lost the engine into the sea. The person in question was not wearing a life jacket either and could have easily capsized in such conditions.
