Weymouth RNLI Inshore lifeboat was tasked by Solent Coastguard at 10.20am on Monday 3rd January 2022 to go to Portland Harbour where there had been reports of a kite surfer in difficulties.
Arriving on scene shortly after, the volunteer crew found that a kite surfer had become separated from her kite. Both surfer and kite were taken onto the lifeboat and dropped safe and well back to Ferry Bridge where she had set off from.
The lifeboat then returned to Weymouth Harbour, refuelled and made ready for the next shout.
