The RNLI has announced plans to strip New Quay of its All-Weather Lifeboat by
2020. This map shows the dangerous gap in sea safety provision that will affect the
whole of the Ceredigion coastline. The Green circles show the maximum distance
of 12.5 nautical miles that the latest generation of All-Weather Lifeboats can travel
at 25 knots in 30 minutes in calm conditions. In a challenging sea, the nearest boats
at Barmouth and Fishguard would take more than an hour and a half to respond
to an emergency off New Quay or Aberaeron.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT IN CHALLENGING THIS
ILL-CONSIDERED PLAN TO STRIP OUR COASTLINE
OF VITAL EMERGENCY COVER.
