The search resumed at 06:00 this morning for crew-members of a fishing-vessel which sank yesterday afternoon off St David's Head in Pembrokeshire, Wales.

One man was pulled from the water last night and transferred to hospital but his condition is not known.

The UK Coastguard had received a 999 call from a member of the public just before 14:30 on 28 April to report that they could see a fishing vessel in difficulty near the rocks at St David’s Head - the vessel subsequently sank.
The HM Coastguard search and rescue helicopter based at St Athan and Coastguard Rescue Teams from St David's Head and Fishguard are all involved in the ongoing search, along with three RNLI lifeboats, also from St David's Head and Fishguard. The fishing-vessel is being named as the Harvester.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
