Date/Time: 19/07/2015 18:40 - 20:00

Called to Starleyburn for a Vessel Adrift

People Assisted: 0

Local lifeguards located windsurf boards adrift at both Burntisland and Aberdour beaches. The lifeboat was requested to undertake a search between Kinghorn and Aberdour.
A third board was located off Burntisland harbour during the search. Meanwhile Coastguard Rescue Teams were undertaking shore searches. Whilst at Starleyburn harbour, they found evidence of a break-in and other similar boards on a trailer with a number missing.
It was soon established that the boards appeared to have been flung in, and no one was in the water.
