ILB diverted from exercise to a Medivac from the cruise ship Marbella Explorer 2.
The ILb went alongside and transferred one injury crewmember to shore and awaiting ambulance.
Once completed and before rehousing the Coastguards requested the ILb to check an abandoned paddleboard at Bowleaze Cove.
ILb located the board and undertook an expanding square search.
With nothing found, and no further information the ILb was released to return to station, refuelled and made ready for service.
