At 00:34 John D Spicer and the Beaumaris Lifeboat was launched to a report that a 45ft cabin cruiser had collided with a yacht whilst on anchor on the Menai Straits and that her rudder had become tangled around her anchor chain.
Two crew members were transferred on to the casualty to try and deal with the situation and release the anchor chain. At around 02:30 both vessels were released and the Beaumaris Lifeboat escorted the cabin cruiser to a safe mooring in Caernarfon. John D Spicer returned to station at 03:10
