Donaghadee Lifeboat

Kayak in danger of being swept out to sea

The lifeboat was launched at 2.17pm after the Coastguard reported a kayak and one person in difficulties in a strong offshore breeze near Ballyferris Caravan Park south of Millisle. A holidaymaker on a jet ski went to the aid of the canoeist and the Saxon later recovered the kayak. The lifeboat returned to station at 3.00pm.
