The Lizard Lifeboat was launched on Sunday morning to reports of an unattended kayak in the water with its paddle floating nearby in the area off Poldhu beach. Prior to the lifeboats arrival on scene, the owner of the kayak was sighted safe and well on land and the lifeboat was stood down, returning to the station a short time later.

Penlee Lifeboat and Mullion Coastguards were also in attendance. They recovered the kayak from the sea and returned it to its waiting owner on the beach.

A second launch followed the following morning, Monday, June 11 shortly after 7.45am when the lifeboat was required to go to the assistance of a 32 foot yacht "Fair Emma" in a position of 4 miles south of Lizard Point.

With four people on board, the yacht had suffered from complete engine failure and with no wind was unable to sail. Upon arrival on scene the lifeboat attached a tow and the yacht was safely towed to Newlyn.
