The lifeboat launched to assist a kitesurfer, called by a member of the public.  The lifeboat was swift to launch and reached the surfer within 3 mins of launching. The kitesurfer was very well prepared and was slow to reach the shoreline given the drop in wind. He was recovered back onto the lifeboat and taken back to Lymington.
