Inshore lifeboat George Bearman launched at 12.55pm on 30 October to a kitesurfer on a sandbank, 500m south of the lifeboat station.
Crew volunteers were on scene within four minutes following a call to the Coastguard from the casualty’s mother, on the beach. The lady from London had lost control of her kite when the wind dropped in a strong ebb tide.
