While out on the water today, Sunday, training the Howth Coast Guard boat was tasked Along with Howth ILB to Balscadden bay to assist a Kayaker who had lost his kayak in choppy sea conditions. The Howth ILB was on scene first and recovered the kayak and returned it to the owner on shore.
Later during the training Howth were tasked to assist two small ribs at Ireland's eye in returning to the harbour. Sea conditions had worsened in the afternoon so the small boats were having difficulty crossing Howth sound. The ribs were escorted back to the harbour and the Coast Guard was stood down.
