Selsey Inshore Lifeboat Get Tasking While Out on Exercise

The D class inshore Lifeboat (ILB) was tasked at 7.05 p.m. on Wednesday 7th August by UK Coastguard to a windsurfer believed to be in difficulties to the west of Bognor Regis.

The ILB was on scene at 7.15 p.m. to find the windsurfer was well and had been practising stop and starts which made it look like they were having problems. The weather on scene was south westerly force 4-5 in sunshine.

The ILB was released by the Coastguard to return to exercising at 7.36 p.m. with this call being put down as a false alarm with good intent.

CREW: Will Moir (Helmsman), Kristina Dolan and Harry Emmence.
