Four fishermen were taken off their fishing vessel by lifeboat on 26 August 2008 after the fifteen metre British built wooden vessel 'Bruno of Sutton’ went aground at Rhossili Bay.
After a mayday broadcast at 2.20 am, Swansea requested the Rhossili Coastguard Rescue, the Burry Port inshore RNLI lifeboat and the Tenby all weather RNLI lifeboat to launch.
The Coastguard Rescue Team remained on scene over night. The Burry Port inshore lifeboat took the crew of four off the vessel at their request.
The fishing vessel was pulled of the sands at the next high tide at 16.30 BST by a salvage vessel. The lifeboats were still standing by.
The Bruno of Sutton previously ran aground on the East side of Lundy Island on 5th. August 2007.
