Callout 19th September 2020

Our in-shore lifeboat, D-719, launched at 14:11 to assist a kite surfer in difficulties, off Rossall Point. Imagine the volunteer crew's surprise to find the kite surfer, was non other than 2017 World Kitesurfing Champion, Hannah Whiteley !!

Hannah agreed to have her photo taken with our crew, as long as they kept their masks on. Who could blame her ? No use ruining a good photo !!
