Immediately following the previous tasking to a SUP at Newton Point UK Coastguard requested the crew investigate a blue object floating approximately 1 mile off Rest Bay which had been reported by Porthcawl NCI.

The crew located the object which was a partially deflated inflatable kayak. Given the condition of the kayak and no signs of recent occupation or reports of a missing person the crew were stood down by UK Coastguard and returned to the lifeboat station. The lifeboat was refueled, rehoused and made ready for service.
