Called to Starleyburn for a False Alarm
People Assisted: 0
The lifeboat was launched to undertake a search after a surf board was found on the shoreline by a member of the public near the Fife Coastal Path at Starleyburn.
A shoreline search was undertaken between Burntisland and Braefoot bay, returning to Kirkcaldy approximately 0.25 miles offshore.
A second surfboard was found at Ross Point by the crew. It was soon established by the Coastguard that both boards had been set adrift and that no-one was in difficulty.
