1.61 hours at sea, 2 people were helped


The lifeboat was tasked following a personal locator beacon (PLB) activation by a kayaker north of Longniddry.

The lifeboat crew was able to home in on the casualty due to their use of the PLB which was also properly registered.

The two kayakers were located and both were recovered to the lifeboat. They were taken to Port Seton where they were checked over before being able to travel home themselves.
