Today Sunday 14th March was intended to be a training exercise for the ALB crew, who had not been on regular training due to covid 19 restrictions. Both boats have been available for service calls throughout the pandemic, but training had been suspended. As the crew were going through a rigorous refresher, Humber Coastguard received a call of a kite surfer in difficulty. The ALB raced from Flamborough North landing to Fraisthorpe beach to assist. The kite surfer was taken aboard and handed over to the coastguard within 15m.
