While on exercise, Sidmouth 2 was tasked to reports of a person being blown out to see on a SUP off Budleigh beach.

Once the lifeboat had arrived on scene, a near shore search was quickly conducted along with a shore line to locate the paddleboarder.

Exmouth coastguard was also on scene walking the beach. No persons were found at sea.
