At 10:55, the "John D Spicer" was launched to a report from Holyhead Coastguard that a laser boat had capsized 1 mile out of Aberafon Beach, near Clynnog Fawr, with 1 person in the water. On arriving the casualty, another inflatable boat was assisting the person in water (and capsized laser) who informed the lifeboat, that yet another laser was also in trouble 2 miles out.
The John D. Spicer went to assist the other laser and towed the boat safely back to Aberafon Beach with casualty on board the lifeboat. Lifeboat returned to station shortly afterwards at 13:10
