Called to Portobello for a Vessel Adrift

People Assisted: 0

The lifeboat was called to assist a jetski which was drifting offshore from Portobello beach. When the lifeboat arrived the crew discovered that there was nobody on the jetski, which had been launched from the beach and then blown out to sea before the owner could get a hold of it.

The jetski was towed ashore and reunited with its owner.
