ILB launched after a report to the NMOC from a 999 call stating a kite surfer was in difficulties. The casualty was reported to be in difficulty, half a mile off Bowleaze cove.

Once on scene it was established that no medical assistance was required. The kitesurfer had came into difficulty when becalmed, and was therefore unable to relaunch the kite and return to shore.

The casualty was returned to the beach at Bowleaze by the ILB, with board and kite, and met by Wyke CRT. The ILB was returned to station and made ready for next service.
