Solent coastguards requested lifeboat assistance to a report of a windsurfer being blown across Portland Harbour.
The ALB was on exercise in Weymouth Bay and made way to Portland Harbour.
Once on scene a RIB from the W&PNSA was found to be dealing with the kite, not a windsurfer.
With everything in order the ALB was released to continue with the exercise
