At 18:45 Falmouth Coastguard requested that Falmouth Inshore Lifeboat be launched after members of the public raised concerns for an individual on a Rigid Inflatable anchored in Calenick Creek. The Falmouth Coastguard Cliff Rescue Team was also tasked to assist.

The Inshore Lifeboat launched from her slipway at 18:53 and headed up the Carrick Roads, then River Fal and Truro River arriving off Calenick Creek at 19:21. The Rigid Inflatable was soon located with the individual on board and it was confirmed that the occupant was safe and well and did not need any further assistance so at 19:40 the Inshore Lifeboat was released to return to its station.

The Inshore Lifeboat was recovered onto its slipway at 20:12 where it was refuelled and made ready for service by 20:30.
