In a recent survey it was found many didn’t know who to call in a coastal emergency so what an opportunity with lots of visitors to promote the Coastguard and the 999 system.
Just for carnival .... 999 shirts. The team at the carnival swim last night.
So yesterday whilst enjoying the afternoon the Station Officer spotted a broken down jet ski in the bay and a person waving for assistance.
A 999 call to National Maritime Operations Centre saw an incident start with rescue assets about to be alerted. A passing jet ski came to the aid of the broken down ski and towed it back to shore to be met by the Coastguard for some advice.
The second time this week a rope has been sucked into a jet ski causing it to break down.
