Lifeboats were tasked by Belfast Coastguard at 17:34pm and were requested to proceed to Rams Island where 3 persons become stranded with poor weather conditions and a kayak which had been damaged. 

Upon arriving on scene our crews located the casualties and checked that they were ok and not in need of any any medical attention. 

Following this the crew brought the 3 persons onboard the lifeboats and took them to safety in Sandy Bay Marina.  

The lifeboats were then stood down and returned to base where they were cleaned and fuelled for the next tasking.
