Silloth Lifeboat called out to wind surfer in distress off Scottish coast


Silloth RNLI lifeboat was called out at 5:19pm on Sunday 9 August to a kite surfer in distress just off Powfoot on the Scottish coast.

A spokesperson from the RNLI said:

"There were two kite surfers involved in the incident but one had made it safely back to shore. The tide was ebbing with a fresh north easterly offshore breeze.

"Annan coastguard was also involved in the emergency.

"The lifeboat from Silloth had almost reached the area concerned when Belfast Coastguard confirmed to helmsman Steven Henderson that both casualties had now managed to swim safely to shore unaided and were safe and well but the surfing equipment had been abandoned; although this too was later recovered. Consequently the lifeboat was stood down at 5:43pm.

"The RNLI lifeboat returned to Silloth and was made ready for service again by 6:12pm."
