The Porthdinllaen Lifeboat was launched today at 5pm to a report that 2 windsurfers had been swept out to sea at Benllech beach, with both their masts (and sails) broken. On arrival both windsurfers had managed to paddle ashore (whilst lying on their boards) along with dragging 1 mast and sail between them. The lifeboat found and picked up the other mast and sail, and then returned back to Porthdinllaen approx 6pm.
Lansiwyd y bad achub am 5 o'r gloch heddiw at ddau hwylfyrddiwr a gafodd eu chwythu allan i'r môr oddi ar draeth Benllech. Erbyn i'r bad achub gyrraedd, roedd y ddau wedi llwyddo i nofio nôl i'r lan ar gefn eu byrddau - gan lusgo un o'r mastiau a hwyliau (a oedd wedi torri) rhyngddynt. Codwyd y mast a'r hwyl arall (a oedd eto wedi torri) gan griw'r bad achub, gan ddychwelyd nôl i gwt y bad achub ym Mhorthdinllaen am 6 o'r gloch.
