Stranded people and a dog are OK

Members of the public on the beach at Sandy Point reported that there were three people and a dog on the sandbank south of the harbour mouth, and that they were cut off by the tide.  When the Atlantic 85 reached them a few minutes later, they found that they had kayaks with them and that they had just paused for a rest and a stretch!  The UK Coastguard was informed and the lifeboat returned to the station.
