Lifeboat aids windsurfer reported in difficulty
Monday 1st May 2017 we launched at 1419hrs to help a windsurfer reported in difficulty. We found him in the middle of the River Blackwater unable to get back on his board. We took him back to his launch point off Seaview Avenue, West Mersea, where he was handed over to the mobile coastguard team. Once he was safely ashore we returned to the station.
