Falmouth Coastguard at 20:29 requested the launch of Falmouth’s All Weather and Inshore Lifeboat to investigate a report of a kayak drifting off Portloe in Veryan Bay. Falmouth new Atlantic 85 class Inshore Lifeboat which was taking part in its pre-commissioning training also responded.

Once on scene it was found that the object was not a kayak but instead a derelict small craft. The Inshore Lifeboat towed this back ashore while the other two lifeboats were released to return to the lifeboat station.

Further details to follow shortly.
