The inshore lifeboat went to a report of what was believed to be paddleboarders in trouble one mile south of Portslade. When the crew reached the scene, they found two kayaks with three children in, who could not paddle back ashore.
They were taken into the lifeboat and taken ashore to the beach at Millionaires Row and checked over. The inshore lifeboat then returned to Shoreham Harbour to take over the tow of a broken down speedboat from the all weather lifeboat. It then towed the vessel up the locks.
