At 14.06 hrs at the request of Humber Coastguard the Sheringham Lifeboat was launched to assist two single seater Kayaks being taken offshore by a strong easterly wind & increasing easterly swell.
On arrival on scene, midway between West Runton & Sheringham, one Kayak had managed to get ashore and the second Kayak having been in the water for over 30mins was finally making a successful surfing run to the beach.
Whilst the Lifeboat stood by the coastguard beach team met with both persons onshore and determined that they had suffered no injuries and no further assistance was required and the Lifeboat was stood down.
Good service professionally undertaken with a good result.
