UK Coastguard tasked our volunteer crew to a windsurfer in difficulty in Newton Bay. The inital report had come from Porthcawl NCI. The D Class lifeboat was launched on service and located the casualty who had suffered equipment failure. The casualty and his equipment were taken onboard the lifeboat and transferred to Newton Beach where the crew were met by our colleagues from Porthcawl Coastguard Team. As the crew made their way back out from the beach they located a second windsurfer who was struggling to get back to shore. He was also assisted back to the beach.
