Paddle boarder seen going out to sea.

Boat launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Monday 27th August

Launched at : 20:06

Returned at : 20:25

Weather :  F5 S wind and a bit choppy.

A paddle boarder was reported off E Wittering going out to sea despite the on-shore wind. Solent Coastguard requested we launch and make a search from West to East along the shore. Once on site a crewman was put ashore to talk to a boarder on the beach but he was not the reported casualty. Shortly after this Solent Coastguard was told by the original informant that the boarder was safe ashore and so the lifeboat was stood down.

The lifeboat returned to the Station and was made ready for further service.
