Paddleboarder fighting the tide.

Boat Launched : Atlantic 85

Date: Friday 28 September

Launched at : 15:00

Returned at : 15:20

Weather : Force 4 WSW wind and rough seas

On a strong ebb tide a paddle boarder was struggling to get into the harbour and a member of the public called the Solent Coastguard. The Atlantic 85 was launched and found the boarder on the far side of the channel aiming to work his way up tide and then to shoot across to reach the shore. He was however grateful to accept a lift together with his paddle board back to the Lifeboat Station.

The Atlantic was made ready for further service.
