Called to Kirkcaldy for a False Alarm

People Assisted: 0

The lifeboat crew was tasked by the Coastguard following a report of a potential theft of a boat from Kirkcaldy harbour.
The boat was located off the harbour soon after the crew arrived onscene and it was soon established that the rigid inflatable boat had three sailors on board from a commercial vessel at anchor in Kirkcaldy bay. They had come ashore to pick up groceries.
Once it was established that all was ok, the lifeboat returned to station.
