Donaghadee Lifeboat

Lifeboat called out to kayakers in trouble

Donaghadee RNLI were requested to launch last Friday 2nd August at 1.35pm by Bangor Coastguard to go to the aid of two men in kayaks in trouble off Millilse.

A member of the general public had rang the Coastguard to report the incident. On arriving on the scene second coxswain John Ashwood launched the XP boat with two crew members on board to go to the aid of the men. One of the men was taken ashore in the XP boat while the other was able to make his own way. With the men out of danger the lifeboat returned to Donaghadee shortly after 2.40pm.
