Windsurfer in Trouble

Windsurfer in Trouble

On 2nd July we were called at around 5.30pm to go to a windsurfer with broken gear towards the north shore of the Blackwater near Osea.

It was windy; force 5, gusting force 6. We found him drifting with his mast broken and his sail torn. We picked him up along with his gear and took him back to Marconi safe and sound.
