ME did you see another Lifeboat there?, according to the marine traffic site, the Fleetwood lifeboat No 13 12 is on station, perhaps on call while the crew are training on the new boat.
        I spoke to a crew member at about 0815 this morning by the new station and he told me that 13-12 is a Shannon training lifeboat and has been moored in Conwy for the past week and used in conjunction with the spare training carriage which has been parked outside the new station recently for launching and recovery training purposes.
        Apparently the existing  Mersey Class lifeboat will be the operational lifeboat until the station is officially handed over in a couple of weeks.

It's official......  ££$ ££$

A NEW ERA BEGINS FOR LLANDUDNO'S LIFEBOATS
The RNLI has announced that following the very successful completion of pre-commissioning crew training, the new RNLI Boathouse at Llandudno together with the all-weather lifeboat 'William F Yates' will become fully operational as of now.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the crew who have put in a lot of time and hard work over the last few weeks, learning all new drills and procedures with the help of the RNLI Shannon and SLARS training team on the new boat and the new launch and recovery system.
We would also like to thank the families of the crew for all of their support.

It certainly is the most agile boat I have seen, as I said above they made it dance, but the most impressive maneuver for me, traveling at speed to full stop, remarkable.
The photo below shows the boat coming to a stop from high speed.

Coastguard news

We were paged at 14:02 today at the request of the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust to assist with a casualty on the cycle path at West Shore.

We were first on scene as the ambulance had been diverted to a higher priority call and due to the volume of calls they were unable to dispatch another.
One of the team, who is an Emergency Medical Technician with the Ambulance Service, assessed and treated the casualty whilst the rest of the team came up with an extraction plan.

It was decided that helicopter extraction was the best method so requested the attendance of Rescue 936.
The team set up a landing site on the beach and provided smoke for the pilot.
Once the casualty was packaged the team then carried him by stretcher into the helicopter.
He was then taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd for further treatment.

We were then stood down and returned to station.

CANINE RESCUE BY LLANDUDNO RNLI CREW

Llandudno RNLI inshore lifeboat 'Dr Barbara Saunderson' was called out by Holyhead Coastguard at 11.35 a.m. today (Monday) following a report that a dog had fallen into the sea from Colwyn Bay promenade whilst chasing a bird, and was now struggling in the surging high tide conditions. There was concern that a member of the public might be tempted to enter the sea to attempt a rescue, and get into difficulties themselves.

Taken by road to Rhos-on-Sea, the lifeboat launched from there at 11.51, reaching the incident minutes later. The crew found that the dog - a springer spaniel - had been swept onto rocks at the base of the promenade and that a member of the public had climbed down a flight of stone steps to try to reach the animal.

The saturated dog was quickly taken aboard the lifeboat and by 12 noon had been safely landed ashore into the care of its relieved owner.
By 1230 p.m. the lifeboat and her crew had returned to their base at Llandudno.
Llandudno Coastguard were also on scene

Incident at Little Orme
An elderly man has suffered a “traumatic injury” while out in Llandudno this afternoon. The Llandudno coastguard team were called to assist a 70-year-old man at the Little Orme at around 1.20pm today after he broke his leg. He is currently being taken to hospital via helicopter.


Deganwy incident
We were paged at 07:46 this morning after receiving reports of a dinghy with two persons on board in possible distress at Deganwy.
Reports suggested that there were two youths on board paddling with their hands.
On arrival at scene, the two youths quickly dissapeared after abandoning the vessel on the beach.

We went to investigate the vessel and found empty alcohol containers on board. This, along with the condition of the vessel, led us to believe it had been stolen and was being used in an anti social manner.

Coastguard news......

Llandudno Coastguard

We were paged for a second time today at 16:15 after receiving a 999 call to report children in the sea at pigeons cove on the Great Orme.

We made our way through the bank holiday traffic where we became stuck at the Grand hotel due to coaches left, without drivers, in the middle of the road so our response was delayed. However, with assistance from North Wales Police and a helpful traffic warden we were able to get through.

Llandudno Lifeboat RNLI were also tasked due to our delay in getting to scene.

When we eventually arrived there was a group of around 20 teenagers 'Tombstoning', which is the dangerous activity of jumping from cliffs into the sea.

We sent down a team member to give safety advice as some were jumping in fully clothed and others dangerously close to hitting the cliff itself.

The teenagers accepted our advice and stopped jumping. The lifeboat also assisted with giving safety advice and had the added benefit of combing the cliffs for any more jumpers.
Once we were satisfied everyone was safe and well with appropriate safety advice we were stood down.

We were paged at 12:19 today to reports of people cut off by the tide at West Shore.

Arriving at scene we could see the persons in danger of being cut off. We immediately asked for Lifeboat support so Llandudno Lifeboat RNLI and Conwy Lifeboat were launched.

We also deployed 2 team members in water rescue kit onto the sandbanks to bring the people back to shore.

We were able to bring the casualties back to shore with seconds to spare as the tide cut the sanbanks off completely as soon as we were back on shore.

Safety advice was given and we were all stood down and returned to station once we were happy no other people were in dange

Kids have been jumping off those cliffs for years.

It's even in this poorly written nostalgia fest

Done that - got the T-shirt.  It's possibly one of the safer places to do it, although now the ladder has rusted away it's trickier to get back up. And if the water's a bit frisky there's a risk of being bashed against the rocks. Jumping in fully clothed - especially if wearing some types of jeans - isn't a good idea. The water's still a bit on the chilly side, and the sudden shock of that, plus the tendency of some jeans to become very heavy when waterlogged could land them in trouble.
