    Glad to hear they're alive.

    Was a lovely day yesterday but it seemed pretty windy to me in the evening.

    Happens a lot these days - huge increase in blow up stand up paddles and boats

    Looks like the were on blow up sups, they had buoyancy aids and were still on the SUPS so they must have rafted up and used the leashes to hold on the buoy. That kept them out of water. They didn't have wet suits. I wonder were they on Lidl or Aldi specials and didn't know what they were at. The only time I've been on a SUP I found it very hard going in the wind I can see how you would be blown out easily.

    Anyone hear if they were experienced boarders. A good news story yes, but any lessons learned?
