The NMOC requested the launch of the ILB, following a report from a concerned member of the public. The concern was for a kite surfer or paraglider with a green and black kite in difficulty, approximately 1nm off Bowleaze cove.

The ILB was launched. When arriving on scene a search commenced for the casualty. The CRT were in attendance on shore and were able to locate the casualty who had made their own way to safety.

The ILB was then stood down and returned to station where it was made available for the next tasking.
