Kite surfer gets in a tangle

Boat launched : Atlantic 85

Date : Wednesday 17 June

Diverted at : 20:00

Weather : Fine with a F5WSW wind

Whilst on exercise the Atlantic 85 was diverted following a telephone call asking for help to go to a kitesurfer in trouble off the Inn on the Beach Restaurant. Having asked the caller to ring the UK Coastguard and after checking with them, the Lifeboat was diverted and very quickly was on scene. They found the kitesurfer who had his lines tangled and who was very tired. He and his rig were taken on board the lifeboat and transported back to the safety of the shore.
