Man rescued after kayak capsizes

A man was rescued after his inflatable kayak capsized.

The alarm was raised at about 12.15 today when a person was spotted getting into difficulties off the coast at Shoreham.

An RNLI lifeboat was sent out to pick up the man and return him shore.

One of the lifeboat crew members paddled the kayak back to Shoreham.

An RNLI spokesman said the man had attached a sail to the kayak but the craft capsized and he could not right it and get back in.

He said: “The man was not far out but he was there for a while and was starting to get tired.”
