Latest launch information:31st May 2020
The Swanage Inshore Lifeboat (ILB) was launched this morning to assist a group of kayakers in Durlston Bay, one of whom had capsized his craft and was unable to get back in.
The group had managed to make their way onto the rocky shore when the ILB found them, they explained they were planning to go further west for some fishing. The ILB crew offered some advice about the tides and shoreline in the area and then escorted the group as they made their way back into Swanage Bay.
