Here is my best explanation:

'welsh seaside town' is the definition.

'at sea patrol boat loses a little time' is the wordplay.
'at sea' is an anagram indicator.
'loses' indicates named letters should be taken away.
'little time' becomes 't' (abbreviation for time).
'patrolboat' with 'a' removed is 'ptrolboat'.
'ptrolboat' is an anagram of 'porttalbo'.
'porttalbo'+'t'='PORT TALBOT'

'in' is the link.
