Kayaker and Children rescued

As lifeboat was being rehoused after morning training, the Coastguard requested they launch to a kayak in difficulty.
The crew were quickly able to launch the Atlantic and located the kayak with 1 adult and 2 children on board, the kayak was finding it difficult to get back to the beach and the two children on board had become wet and frightened. All 3 casualties were taken onto the lifeboat and back to the station along with their Kayak.  The crew provided a warming shower and hot chocolate to warm and cheer the casualties up. With all three warm and safe, they returned home.

A few days a later a thank you card and big box of biscuits arrived at the station as a thank you for rescuing them.
