1.50 hours at sea


A search was launched off Portobello after an inflatable blew offshore and it could not be confirmed if anyone was onboard. A large search of the area was undertaken with Rescue 199 and local CRTs with no-one found. Five inflatables were recovered in the area which had all blown off the beach.
