Kite surfers launch the ILB


Skegness RNLI Inshore Lifeboat launched just after 3pm on Sunday November 26th to go to the aid of two kite surfers off Skegness north beach. A member of the public had seen them apparently in difficulties and dialled 999.


Both were unharmed although one became separated from his board and made his way to the lifeboat station. The other got ashore safely unaided and was checked by coastguards to see if he needed medical attention.


The occasional  ‘spill’ is part and parcel of the sport so the lifeboat was released from duty and returned to station after crew checked the situation.
