First shout of 2016 for Portrush All weather lifeboat

1 Mins read

The all-weather lifeboat (ALB) was launched at approximately 2.30pm following reports of kaykaers in difficulty at Kinnego Bay in Donegal.

The weather conditions at the time were difficult as the wind was in a northwesterly direction. Sea conditions were rough and it was bitterly cold.

Fortunately, before the lifeboat and its volunteer crew reached Kinnego Bay, Greencastle Coastguard reported that they had located the kayakers and were transporting them back to safety.

Speaking following the call out, Robin Cardwell, Portrush RNLI Lifeboat Operations Manager said: ‘This turned out to be a good news story, but could have been very different. The advice is always to check the weather conditions before you set off, wear appropriate clothing and let someone know when you are expected back.’
