Barmouth RNLI lifeboats launch to yacht caught in bridge.

Lifeboats News Release

Tuesday 22 August 2017

At 6.29pm on the evening of Monday 21 August Barmouth RNLI volunteer crew were paged by the UK Coastguard to launch both lifeboats to a 34ft yacht which had broken it’s moorings and ended up caught in Barmouth bridge.

The inshore lifeboat was quickly launched to assess the scene and confirm if any persons were on board, the all-weather lifeboat was launched shortly after at 6.45pm. It was quickly determined that there were no persons thought to be on board in the casualty vessel.

Given that there was thought to be no persons onboard, a fast flowing incoming tide, and the fact the yacht was wedged fast into the bridge, the decision was made to stand-off until after high water at 8.55pm.

Cables from the yacht were caught up in the bridge meaning any recovery had to be taken slowly and in a manner as to not endanger the volunteer crew or the bridge itself. During the assessing of the most opportune moment to move the yacht, both lifeboat crews liaised with both the harbourmaster and Barmouth Coastguard Team who were on the bridge and able to pass on information on how the yacht was caught up in the bridge’s structure.

At 9.43pm the mast on the casualty vessel broke under the pressure of the changing tide. This released the yacht from the bridge. This meant the inshore lifeboat could guide the vessel away from further damage to a safe location.

Both lifeboats were back on station and ready for service by 11.15pm.
