Solent Coastguards requested Lifeboat assistance to a report from Portland Port staff of a kite surfer in difficulties in Portland Harbour
ILB paged and launched.
A passing yacht was standing by the casualty until the ILB arrived
Once on scene the casualty was found safe and well, but could not make shore, so the ILb stowed and recovered the equipment and casualty on to the ILB, and brought them ashore to Ferry Bridge where they were landed to the awaiting Coastguard mobile.
The ILB was then released to return to station where it was refuelled and made ready for service.
