Launch To Kite Surfer 11/10/2018

Poole Lifeboat launched on 11th October to reports of a kite surfer in difficulty off Ham Park.
The Lifeboat was soon on scene in the blustery conditions. A vessel from Lake Yard Marina had also arrived on scene and had assisted the casualty out of the water. The lifeboat crew placed a crew member onto the vessel to check all was well and that no medical assistance was required.
As all was well the lifeboat volunteers recovered the kite surfing kit and took the gentleman back to shore.
Before departing the scene another report came in of a windsurfer in difficulty in the same location. After a short search the lifeboat found the person with his windsurf kit safely ashore.
