Both boats launched to a report of a missing laser dingy launched from Portland Harbour. Lifeboats searched the harbour and breakwaters with nothing found. A report was received from a vessel anchored in Weymouth Bay that they had a small target visible to the south of them. The Lifeboats closed this position, and found the sailor safe and well. The casualty and boat was brought back to Weymouth harbour.
