Ramsgate RNLI has been launched twice this afternoon (July 28) to people in difficulty.
At around 4.20pm today the inshore lifeboat was sent to the aid of four people in an inflatable swept out to sea off Joss bay.
Lifeguards attempted to help but couldn’t bring the people back inshore. The ILB launched to assist, taking the lifeguards back to shore and the four people from the inflatable to Ramsgate RNLI station.
The ILB crew has now been called out to a report of a person in a canoe in difficulty off Stone Bay.
UPDATE: A man fell out of his canoe and was helped ashore by a friend in a second canoe. One craft was left drifting which was retrieved by the RNLI crew.
