Kayakers get ashore unaided after a capsize.

Boat Launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Saturday 20 July

Launched at : 09:55

Returned at : 10:15

Weather : Fine but with a choppy sea and a F4 NE wind.

Two kayakers, a lady and her child, were fishing off Beachlands and were seen to capsize and struggle to right the boat. Responding to a call from the Solent Coastguard we reached the area quickly but found that both had reached the shore and that a third person who swam out to help had also returned exhausted but safe. A crew member was landed to ensure that they did not need medical assistance and the lifeboat then returned to the station.
