Weather : good visibility with a F5 WSW wind.

A member of the public alerted the Solent Coastguard to a windsurfer in difficulties in Hayling Bay. His kite had blown inside-out and the lines were entangled round the chute. The Atlantic 85 was launched but could not find a casualty and discovered that two paddle boarders had helped the kite surfer ashore, and that he had been met by the CG Mobile Unit.

The lifeboat therefore returned to the station.
