HM Coastguard tasked LNR @ 22:00 to search the Antrim bay area for a jet ski with 2 persons on board that had not returned to shore.

LNR’s lifeboats swiftly launched along with shore crews in our land based response units (Lima Romeo and Victor Whiskey).

Following an extensive search on the water the jet ski had been located close to Kettlebottom Island, however there were no occupants on board or in the surrounding area. The search continued both on land and on the water until the casualties were located safe and well.

All units then stood down.

The Antrim Bay Lifeboat brought the jet ski back to shore and all units returned to base and made ready for the next tasking.
