Rescue

by Adrian on August 31, 2006

Well, its a good job we delayed our start until the afternoon as we rescued 2 young lads who were being washed out to sea in a pedalo. They set off from the beach past us at anchor and after messing about a bit in the bay, decided to head out, whereupon they were immediately caught in the current and wind and pushed out to sea.
After watching them drifting backwards for about 3/4 mile they eventually started signalling for help. As the only boat in view we weighed anchor and motored off to collect them and tow them back to safety.
When back in the bay we set them off back to the beach. They were a bit shaken, but not too bothered.
