3/1/2022. 1251. ILB crew paged by HM Coastguard at Holyhead to reports of small boat with engine problems at the harbour entrance. As the crew were kitting up, the coastguard reported the persons had managed to re-start the engine and had returned safe to the harbour. Crew stood down at 1255. Classed as standby.

1/1/2022. 1738. Both lifeboats launched on New Year’s Day, to assist local coastguards and police officers searching for two females. The two had reported their position to the police using the ‘What Three Words’ app on their phones. This gave searchers a more accurate area to locate the girls. The lifeboats were requested to do a shoreline search using their searchlights between Presthaven Sands camp and Talacre lighthouse. The girls were fairly quickly spotted by both search teams on land and sea, and were escorted back to safety at Talacre. The lifeboats returned to station at 1930.
