The John D.Spicer was launched tonight (June 26th) at 1930 to a 26 foot yacht which had suffered mechanical failure near Penrhyn Melyn, approx 5 miles down the coast from Porthdinllaen, towards Porth Colmon. The lifeboat was alongside the vessel ‘Pegasus’ by 1950. The lifeboat towed the casualty vessel (with 1 person on board) back to Porthdinllaen where she was placed on a safe mooring. The lifeboat was back in the boathouse by 2130.
