Kite surfer in a tangle

Boat launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Sunday 23 June

Launched at : 09:15

Returned at : 09:30

Weather : Fine with a F4 W wind

The Atlantic 85, requested by the Coastguard, went to assist a kite surfer in trouble who had become entangled with his rig. His ‘buddy’ had phoned for help saying he was off Eastoke Point. He had in fact drifted into the harbour mouth and was only 100m south of the RNLI station, so we quickly reached him and recovered both kite surfer and his rig and returned them to the station. He was collected by his ‘buddy’ after being checked over for any injuries.
