At 17:32 on Monday 19th July 2021, Guernsey Coastguard was alerted to 2 kayakers in difficulty 500 metres off of Albecq. Police Officers attended the scene and reported 2 kayakers out of their kayaks and clearly in difficulty.
St Peter Port Inshore Lifeboat “Elizabeth and Margaret Milligan” and All-Weather Lifeboat “Spirit of Guernsey” were paged and launched on service at 17:37 and 17:49 respectively.
In the meantime, Police Officers managed to get a throw line to the kayakers as they drifted closer to shore at Fort Hommet and pull them to safety. Both kayakers were then placed in the care of St John Paramedics.
The Lifeboats were both back on their moorings by 18:15.
