Passing yacht helps broken down jetski in Swanage Bay
Members of the public informed the UK Coastguard that a jetski with two people on board was blowing out to sea.
The ILB took the jetski from the yacht ,as it could navigate the shallower water, and took it to the beach. With everyone safe and well the ILB returned to station to be washed down and re-housed.
