Details
The lifeboat launched after concerns were raised for a female swimmer who had swum out from the beach near to the Old Neptune public house, Whitstable, but had not yet returned.

The lifeboat crew located the swimmer halfway between the lifeboat station and the Old Neptune, and although she had not been in any difficulties, she was brought aboard the lifeboat and landed ashore to her husband.

The call was deemed to be a false alarm, but with good intent.
