1.23 hours at sea


The lifeboat was tasked to investigate a drifting unoccupied kayak off West Wemyss.
The plastic boat was quickly located and recovered into the lifeboat and returned to Kinghorn.
Following a plea for information it was confirmed the kayak had been lost off Kirkcaldy the previous evening and the paddler was safe and well.
