Coastguard and Lifeboat tasked to broken down jet ski

This afternoon the pagers of both the Coastguard and lifeboat crews were activated for a report of a jet ski and inflatable in distress on the Peveril tide race.

Swanage NCI were keeping watch until the Inshore Lifeboat and Coastguard arrived.

It appears a rope fouled the jet ski , however as the lifeboat arrived the rider of the ski had managed to sort the problem out.

All were escorted ashore to the waiting Coastguard team who offered some safety advice. In his type of incident the Coastguard team are sent to become the eyes and ears of the Operations Room in Fareham and to offer safety advice to those involved.
