Lifeboat Launched To Kitesurfer 03/11/2018

In the second of the weekends calls the UK coastguard had received a report that a kite surfer had got into difficulty off Salterns Marina, the lifeboat made good speed and found a person in the water with his kite sail just by the side of Salterns Marina.
The crew picked him up with his equipment and checked that he was okay, there was a slight breeze, and the water was choppy. The lifeboat had a look for his board in the vicinity but could not find it and advised the harbour authority and Coastguard that the board was unaccounted for, they then took the casualty back to Evening Hill and returned back to the station.
The lifeboat was ready for service by 5.30pm.
