Called to Kinghorn for a False Alarm

People Assisted: 0

The lifeboat crew was tasked following reports of a capsized vessel off Kirkcaldy.

On arrival a small fishing boat with two people onboard was located; the boat was not in any distress. The first informant was then able to confirm that this was the vessel in question and that the call was a false alarm with good intent.

The lifeboat was then stood down.
