Date/Time: 21/05/2015 21:05 - 21:35

Called to Kinghorn for a Person In Water

People Assisted: 1

The volunteer crew launched to assist a kitesurfer who had got into difficulty off Kinghorn Beach when the wind had dropped and he had been unable to re-fly his kite within the shelter of Kinghorn Bay.

The crew quickly located the man who had just made it ashore east of the Kinghorn Harbour holiday park, below the Fife Coastal Path. A crew member swam the 60m ashore to assist the casualty back to the lifeboat where he was returned to Pettycur.

The crew then returned to station.
