Exercise with Flint lifeboat off Mostyn, gatecrashed by New Brighton’s Hovercraft

Rhyl All-weather lifeboat went on exercise down the River Dee Estuary on Sunday 19th April to practice breeches buoy with Flint Lifeboat crew, and to assist with assessments of the Flint crew in anticipation of one the crew being passed for Inshore Lifeboat helm.
The boats were surprised to see fellow Lifeboatmen from New Brighton with their Hovercraft. It was the last exercise for one of the hovercraft commanders, so he was taken on board Rhyl lifeboat and given a go of the helm.
