Shout Number 65/2010

Date/Time: 04/11/2010 16:15 - 17:00

Called to Kirkcaldy for a False Alarm

People Assisted: 0

The lifeboat was launched to the assistance of two kayakers off Kirkcaldy Prom following sightings of a strobe light indicating possible distress. The pair were monitored by local CCTV cameras and appeared to be fine, however the Coastguard requested that they be checked out by the lifeboat.

The lifeboat arrived to find that the kayakers were out training and had been taking photographs and were not in need of assistance. The lifeboat returned to station.
