Vessels reported as damaged or lost included Lynas Point, Penrhyn Bay and Malltreath Bay, among many others. The Holyhead lifeboat was moved to the inner harbour for protection. All yachts in the marina that were involved in winter racing have been reported sunk. Around 70 private vessels and 10 commercial boats are believed to have been affected. http://www.northwaleschronicle.co.uk/news/16061627.Staff__risking_life_and_limb__as_Storm_Emma_sinks_boats_at_Holyhead_Marina/
