Both Falmouth Inshore and All Weather Lifeboats were launched to assist in a search for an overdue Kayaker in Veryan Bay. The Inshore Lifeboat had just returned from its attendance at the Helford Passage Regatta and was on the slipway being refuelled and washed down when the call was received from the Coastguard. The Inshore Lifeboat was relaunched and was followed a short time later by the All Weather Lifeboat. Both lifeboats arrived on scene off Gull Rock and had commenced their search when information was received that the Kayaker had returned ashore, both the lifeboats and the Portscatho and Mevagissey Coastguard Cliff Rescue Teams were stood down.

More details to follow shortly
