RNLI Make Kayack Rescue In Arklow

The volunteer lifeboat crew were paged at 3.20 on Saturday afternoon following a report that two people were overdue back from a kayaking trip to Arklow Windfarm.

Upon arrival at the scene 2 miles east of Arklow,  one of the kayakers and his boat were transferred to the lifeboat, while the other one was escorted back to Arklow South Beach by lifeboat crews.

The RNLI has issued advice with the Irish Coast Guard, to ask people to avoid using the water for exercise while restrictions are in place.
