At 3.50pm the UK Coastguard requested the launch of the Hunstanton RNLI lifeboat to go to the aid of a kite surfer in trouble off Old Hunstanton.
The Hunstanton volunteer crew launched and located the surfer and took him and his gear aboard the lifeboat and landed him on the beach. He did not require any medical treatment and the crew then returned to station.
This was our third callout over the festive season.
HW. 4.54pm. Wind SW5. Weather Cloudy. Vis. Good Sea state choppy
