Newquay’s RNLI lifeboats launched on Saturday 27th December 2008 to assist a kayaker in difficulties off the south end of Fistral beach.
The kayaker was in a group of three making the most of the good weather after the festive break when he got into difficulties. When it looked like his fellow kayakers were unable to rescue him a member of the public dialled 999.
