Do you know if it's the sandbank near the sewer pipe?     That channel comes in very fast and is fairly deep too.
If it's not there already then the pontoon should be put in place to avoid any loss of life.  The RNLI will get there as quickly as possible but sometimes it is too late and there could be  tragic consequences.

Re second call out...........

HOLIDAYMAKER TRAPPED: Llandudno's RNLI Lifeboat is currently out rescuing another holidaymaker from the sand banks in the West Shore of Llandudno. 12 have been rescued so far today from the same place.
GREAT NEWS: We are pleased to report that although RNLI Llandudno Lifeboat launched again at 3.40pm. There was no sign of anyone further needing any help. Holyhead Coastguard has now confirmed he made it ashore OK.

Sorry Hugo, I do not know the location ..........
But I do agree something has to be done, a dozen in one afternoon is scary, it would only take a multiple emergency to cause time delays..........
I have seen some signs down there, time for more bigger and better warnings.

Possibly better all-round education is needed. A small leaflet in every hotel and BH might have some effect.

From past experience people rarely actually read anything left for their information( including a breakfast menu). Having said that, a small majority read everything in sight.

  And a few read but fail to understand. When I had the mega busy shop in Towyn we were absolutely at bursting point with customers. In desperation and trying to ease the pressure I grabbed a chalk and blackboard, dragged it outside and chalked in big letters "NO MILK. NO BREAD"
  Cue for several shouts "Does that mean you haven't got any milk and bread?"

          Looking out at the orange rescue pontoon on the west shore today I'm sure it has been moved considerably closer to the shore recently. It used to be way out beyond the Perch Light but now it seemed to be just a couple of hundred metres off the Black Rock Breakwater just seaward of the channel. Three or four years ago I passed it piled up on the breakwater the day after a big winter storm.

Man airlifted to hospital after falling ill on boat near Llandudno

A MAN has been airlifted to hospital after falling ill on his boat near Llandudno.

The single-handed yachtsman and his vessel brought to safety in a joint rescue operation involving Llandudno RNLI lifeboat, a coastguard rescue helicopter and a commercial vessel.

The skipper of the 8-metre yacht 'Caprice', bound for Conwy requested help after being taken ill when his craft was six miles north of Great Orme's head.

Llandudno lifeboat launched at 9am today (Monday) and coastguard helicopter Rescue 936 was diverted to the scene, while a nearby windfarm vessel, the 'EMS Viking' was also deployed.

The sailor, who has not been named, was flown to Ysbyty Gwynedd at 9.50am and his yacht was returned to Conwy by the lifeboat.  REF NWPioneer

Llandudno and Rhyl lifeboat crews follow trail of black smoke after reports of boat "on fire"

LLANDUDNO'S inshore lifeboat was launched after reports of a boat "on fire" near Penrhyn Bay.

Llandudno RNLI was launched at 11.25am today (Tuesday). The craft in question - located two miles off Penrhyn Bay - was making intermittent progress eastwards.

Llandudno coastguards ashore at Rhos followed the boat's progress by the trail of black smoke it was emitting. Rhyl RNLI all-weather lifeboat later took over the operation and found the craft was not on fire - but was experiencing engine problems.

A spokesperson for Llandudno Lifeboat said: "Rhyl RNLI all-weather lifeboat launched at 11.45am to take over the operation and found the craft was not in fact on fire, but appeared to be experiencing engine problems.

"It was escorted into Rhyl harbour, whilst Llandudno's lifeboat returned to Porth Eirias at Colwyn Bay for recovery and transfer to Llandudno for refuelling."   REF   Pioneer.

Re: AIR/SEA RESCUE...2016 Rhos on Sea Hoax Call

Rhos on Sea major air and sea search launched after hoax call

A hoax caller sparked a massive air land and sea search after falsely reporting seeing someone enter the water in Rhos on Sea
Police, paramedics and the search and rescue helicopter raced to the scene just after 2.40am this morning, along with crews from Llandudno Coastguard and the RNLI .

On arrival, they found a man wet from the waist down claiming he had been in the water attempting to rescue a man he had apparently seen enter the sea.
But police discovered the call was malicious dealt with the man at the scene.

A spokesman for Llandudno Coastguard said: “ We were paged at 2.44am to reports a person had entered the water at Rhos on Sea.
“We arrived on scene first and were able to speak with the first informant who told us he saw a person walking into the water approximately 30 minutes before our arrival and that he had attempted to go after them.

“Llandudno lifeboat crew were paged and North Wales Police, the Welsh Ambulance Services and Rescue 936 (helicopter) also attended.
“The lifeboat conducted search of the water while we, along with some assistance from the lifeboat shore crew, conducted a shoreline search form Colwyn Bay Pier to the slipway at Rhos on Sea.”

The spokesman added: “The informant was wet from the waist down as he had been in the water attempting to rescue this person so we warmed him up in our vehicle.

“Whilst the air, land and sea search was ongoing and an ambulance standing by, the police began to make some enquiries where details started to emerge to suggest this call might not be as it was initially
“Following further enquiries it was determined that a malicious call had been made and that no one had actually entered the water.”

When Holyhead Coastguard was satisfied no one was in danger, all agencies were stood down.
Llandudno Coastguard returned to their station at 4.45am while police dealt with the hoax caller.
North Wales Police have not confirmed whether anyone was arrested.

Work on Llandudno's new lifeboat station to officially start this week

The turf at the site of the modern new boathouse at Craig-y-Don will be cut on Thursday, April 7, officially signalling the the start of works which are expected to commence to a greater extent on Monday, April 11.

The £2.6 million station, the contract for which was was awarded to North-Wales based contractor Wynne Construction, is expected to take about 14 months to complete and will house a new 25-knot Shannon-class all-weather lifeboat and a D-class inshore lifeboat together with their launching equipment.

Preliminary work to install temporary traffic lights and install pedestrian barriers has already got underway and this week work began on site fencing, with the site cabins due to arrive next week ready to start work.

Traffic lights installed just before the Transport Festival and Victorian Extravaganza weekend? As if the usual chaos isn't bad enough!

Let us hope they move them and make way for 2 way traffic before that weekend!
