Broken down jet ski assisted by Troon RNLI
At 5.26pm Sunday 23 July 2023, with some of the lifeboat crew tucking into their Sunday dinners, the pagers were activated by Belfast Coastguard after reports of a broken-down jet ski off the coast at Stevenston.
After a short tow, the jet ski was soon alongside the slipway where it was met by the coastguard team.
