Hunstanton Lifeboat Launch – Thursday 3rd September 2015

At 7.35pm Humber Coastguard (CG) received a 999 call from a person on Cliff Parade Hunstanton saying that they could see a vessel thought to be in trouble 2 miles off Hunstanton.

Hunstanton RNLI Lifeboat was launched on service to the area and found it to be a sailing club marker buoy.  This was confirmed with the original informant who was with the local CG team and still had visual contact with what he thought was a dinghy in trouble. The tide was flooding and the wind was NW 4 to 5 making sea conditions a bit choppy. After making sure no craft was involved the lifeboat retuned to station.

This was a false alarm with good intent, and we thank the member of public for their concern.

H.W.  10.45pm.  Wind NW 4-5   Weather cloudy.   Vis. fair   Sea state Choppy.
