Called to Pettycur for a Person In Water

People Assisted: 1    Lives Saved: 1

The lifeboat crew were launched to assist a kite surfer who was adrift off Pettycur after becoming separted from his board.

It is understood that the wind had dropped and he had become separated from his board and was unable to launch his kite due to a lack of wind. The casualty ended up adrift in the water for up to an hour before someone on shore called the Coastguard.

The casualty was located and recovered to the lifeboat where he was landed ashore to the Kinghorn Coastguard Rescue Team.
