Bangor RNLI rescue five dinghy sailors being swept out to sea
During an afternoon dinghy sailing session, five young female dinghy sailors and two instructors were caught out by tide swell and gust and were being carried out to sea by the Briggs buoy. All of those being rescued were wearing appropriate clothing and buoyancy aids and were in no immediate danger. A safety RIB from Ballyholme Yacht Club was in attendance and was of great assistance during the rescue. All children were transferred to Bangor Lifeboat and returned safely to shore, with one of the dinghies on tow.
