No kill chord accident - red wharf bay
So, yacht moors off red wharf and shuttles people ashore in a dinghy in through the surf. No life jackets or kill chord.
Few hours (drinks?) later, skipper takes 3 passengers (two children) back out, again, no kill chord or life jackets. Unfortunately, the Boat tips up and all four flop out... Engine then revs up and sets off. Luckily, all got out and the swimmers around got out of the way. Dinghy circles for a good 20 mins and eventually is near shore. Lifeboat (D class is on its way.
No danger whatsoever as no swimmers nearby and then a hero (??) wades out. He's chest high and grabs the dinghy side, only for it to then spin him round 4 times full circle. Why on earth did he risk himself? Luckily he manages to jump in and not fall out, stopping the engine. Could easily have lost his leg, what an idiot!!
By now the skipper had swum out to his yacht and the other adult sets off in the dinghy to him... Paddling, forwards! Clearly the "guest" of skipper and no clue as to how to row. Still no life jacket!!!
Moelfre D class intercepts him prior to reaching yacht and coastguard arrive on the beach. I just hope the D class lads gave him a right rollicking.
I do wonder sometimes.
