The full team were paged at 09:35 to reports of a kite surfer in serious difficulties near to Ferrybridge, Weymouth. Due to the reports, Weymouth Lifeboat ILB and SWAST were also tasked to assist.

The team arrived on scene and liaised with the first informant, who confirmed the kite surfer had been assisted by a Weymouth & Portland Sailing Academy RIB, and was now safely ashore at WPSA. It was established the kite surfer was tangled in their lines, which became wrapped around a buoy putting them in serious danger. Thankfully help was close at hand.

With the casualty safely ashore the team was stood down and returned to base.
