West Mersea rescue kite surfer
An experienced Kite Surfer found himself in difficulties when he became entangled in his lines about half a mile out from the South shore of Mersea Island. A fellow Kite Surfer raised the alarm and the West Mersea lifeboat 'Just George' was on scene in 17 minutes. The casualty was well dressed in a thick wetsuit, so was not unduly cold and was taken to the lifeboat station for a shower and dry clothes.
