Monday 9th May at 14:05 – HMCG tasked both Ardboe & Kinnego Lifeboats to an area between Rams Island and Hog Point for a lone jet skier whom had broken down approx 1nm off shore. Both life boats launched and were quickly on scene where a local fishing vessel was assisting the jet skier. Kinnego lifeboat crew took the casualty on board and towed the jet ski back to Kinnego marina were he had previously launched from. Ardboe lifeboat returned to base.
LNR would like to thank the local fishing vessel who kept the casualty safe upon our arrival.
