17th March 2020. Members of NCI Great Orme Station Llandudno up in North Wales recently visited their local Lifeboat Station which houses the highly impressive William F Yates Shannon class in a superb and relatively new boathouse.
Tony Bale Training officer at Great Orme said “ Our hosts were most congenial and allowed us to explore the Shannon with its high level of technology but not so sure whether that relates to the Heads!!. That said they are all justly proud of their Shannon. This visit rounds off our recent visits to our neighbouring agencies, SAR Bristow base at Caernarfon and HMCG base at Holyhead, one might say a full house or Royal flush especially when thinking of the Shannon's Heads!!
