Selsey RNLI Inshore Lifeboat Launched to Assist Kiteboarder

The Inshore Lifeboat (ILB) launched at 7.29 p.m. on Sunday 30th June after the UK Coastguards received a report that a kiteboarder was in difficulties off of Pagham Harbour.

The ILB made best speed to Pagham, arriving on scene at 7.42 p.m. Nothing could be seen in the immediate area except, whilst on route, they passed a person on the beach at Park Copse at the eastern point of Selsey and so went back to talk to the person. The man said that he had been having problems on his kiteboard and his friend helped him ashore with his paddle board. After reporting this to the Coastguard the ILB was released at 7.54 p.m.

CREW: James Albrey (Helmsman), Andy Lee and Harry Emmence.
