Selsey Lifeboat Station - Launches

30th July 2019

Immediate Launch for Missing Wind Surfer

At 4.07 p.m., whilst the crew were still washing the Lifeboat down after the previous launch, the pagers went again requesting an immediate launch. This time it was to the west of Selsey to search for a missing windsurfer off of East Wittering. The Lifeboat launched at 4.15 p.m. and headed at best speed to the area. At 4.18 p.m. the Coastguards reported that the person had been found and released the Lifeboat to return to station.

At 4.45 p.m. 'Denise and Eric' beached once again for recovery and another wash.

CREW: Colin Pullenger (Coxswain), Geoff Mellett (Mechanic), Max Wiseman, Harry Emmence, Neil Hopcraft and Dan Langford.
