Girls in a kayak get stuck on the mud

Boat Launched : D-Class

Date : Saturday 10 August

Launched at : 18:30

Returned at : 19:05

Weather : Fine with a SW wind

Two girls kayaking in the north end of the harbour got the tide wrong and ended up stuck on a mud bank in Nore Rythe. The D-Class Lifeboat was launched and reached them in 9 minutes but they were a long way from the nearest water access and much nearer to the shore. It was agreed that the Coastguard Mud Rescue team would go to them and successfully did so and took them ashore. The lifeboat stood by but then returned to the station.
