Kite Surfer recovered and a dinghy investigated

Boat launched : D-Class

Date : Monday 8 July

Launched at : 17:45

Returned at : 18:17

Weather : Hot and sunny with an ENE gusty Force 5 wind.

Late on Monday afternoon a kite surfer was rescued having found the NE Force 5 wind a bit challenging and in difficulties off Eastoke Corner. The lifeboat took him and his rig ashore and was returning when they spotted a plastic boat some way offshore on East Pole Sands. On investigation however it proved to be empty so they searched back to the shore and found no casualty.

So a weekend of incidents (and see previous two posts) but happily no-one hurt or injured and some sea-safety lessons learnt from some of the events.
