Stranded on a sandbank ?

Boats launched : Atlantic 85 and D-Class

Date : Saturday 20 July

Launched at : 18:20

Returned at : 18:40

Weather : Cloudy and with a F2 NE wind

Both lifeboats were launched to search for a person stranded on a sandbank by the incoming tide. As the person reporting this was uncertain about exactly where this was, just that it was ‘Close to a lifeguard station,’ the Atlantic 85 went to the W Pole Sands and the D-class t0 the Witterings. Shortly after the launch however the person was reported to have been helped ashore at the W Wittering beach so both lifeboats returned to the station.
