At 10.55am Holyhead Coastguard requested that Porthdinllaen RNLI lifeboat should launch to assist a broken down pleasure craft.

The 20ft Bayliner type craft, called the Blue Moon, had two people on board and had suffered mechanical failure approximately 10 miles North of Porthdinllaen Point.
 
The Blue Moon, which had set off earlier in the morning from Portdinorwig for a leisurely fishing trip, had suffered a drive coupling failure on their inboard engine which was not repairable at sea. Weather conditions were sunny with calm seas and only a slight breeze.
 
Upon arrival, the volunteer lifeboat crew from Porthdinllaen passed over a tow line to the Blue Moon and upon arrival at Porthdinllaen Bay, the boat was placed on a safe mooring.
 
The lifeboat then returned to the boathouse and was refuelled and ready for service at 12.45pm.
 
Ken Fitzpatrick, Lifeboat Operations Manager at Porthdinllaen RNLI, said: 'The Blue Moon suffered an unavoidable breakdown due to the failure of the engine drive coupling and the only option was to request a tow back to Porthdinllaen.'

The John D.Spicer was launched at 18.45 last night (Saturday 13th) to a report from Porthdinllaen Coastguard of a 30 foot motor cruiser that had ran aground at Traeth Benllech, approx 4 miles down the coast from Porthdinllaen.The motor cruiser (with one person on board), had suffered broken mast and rudder after running aground. Porthdinllaen lifeboat towed the vessel towards Anglesey, where they passed the tow on to Holyhead Lifeboat volunteers, just south of South Stack. The casualty vessel was then towed back to Holyhead with the Holyhead Coastguard co-ordinating. The John D.Spicer returned to Porthdinllaen and was back in the boathouse by 23.30.
