HM Coastguard tasked Porthcawl RNLI’s volunteer crew to assist two people on an inflatable kayak struggling to get back to shore. The casualties were being aided by an RNLI lifeguard who had paddled out to them on a rescue paddle board.

The Atlantic 85 was launched on service. The two casualties were taken onboard the lifeboat and dropped back to shore at Sandy Bay (Coney Beach) whilst the RNLI lifeguard paddled themselves back to shore.
