The St Peter Port Inshore Lifeboat (ILB) was launched last evening (6th July 2020) to go to the assistance of two 17 year old males who were in difficulties off the Groines at Vazon.
Guernsey Coastguard received a call at 19:27, informing them that 2 males were in difficulty and clinging to the Groines.
The ILB departed St Peter Port at 19:43 and was on scene at 20:05, the Spirit of Guernsey was also tasked to assist, departing at 20:02.
An experienced local surfer on a rescue board made his way to the two persons in distress and gave assistance and ultimately paddled them back to shore.
Thanks must be given to a surfer who threw his board out to the casualties, which they then managed to get a hold of, and which provided a buoyancy aid, until the local surfer reached them.
The two lifeboats were stood down, and were back on station at 20:43 and 20:32 respectively.
