On Tuesday 11th of August 2009 at 11:16pm both St Davids RNLI all-weather & inshore lifeboats under the command of coxswain David John and helmsman Robin Copley
launched on service following reports of three red flares being sighted approximately 2-3 nautical miles north west of St Davids Head.

Once they arrived at the harbour and because of the state of the tide and lack of water under the lifeboat, the tow was passed to fellow crew member Robin Copley who used his own craft to assist the casualty into the harbour and back to its moorings.
