Mersey class lifeboat recovery [partial]

Visited Barmouth this morning as was fortunate enough to witness the recovery of their relief boat 12-21. Weather was quite windy and the water fairly choppy too, so the wind and swell made things a little interesting for the boat, just as they nosed the bow on the shore, the swell started to take the stern round before they could attach the drag line, fortunately the shore crew were on their toes and recovered quickly safely to the beach.

Sorry for the grainyness of the images, but was sitting in shelter from the breeze about 400yds away on the promenade !
