A relaxing walk at middle beach after work suddenly turned into an incident today.
A windsurfer was monitored for about 15 minutes this afternoon , when they seemed to struggle to get back to shore. Suddenly they started to wave and that prompted a 999 call to the Coastguard.
The Coastguard were just in the process of calling the Swanage Lifeboat when two boats responded to the windsurfer waving. One of the boats managed to get along side and bring the female ashore to meet the Coastguard team on the beach.
Having been checked the lady was most grateful and didn't realise the link with the 999 call and the team meeting her!
