Vessels from Poole lifeboat station were launched 156 times last year
A kitesurfer had to be rescued off the Dorset coast when his equipment failed.
Poole RNLI inshore lifeboat went to the aid of the surfer in the south end of Poole Harbour on Saturday afternoon.
The local man was recovered unhurt and taken back to shore at about 1345 GMT. While on the same call out the lifeboat crew spotted a windsurfer in trouble.
Poole lifeboat, which was the UK's busiest coastal rescue team in the past year, brought the 23-year-old man, suffering from fatigue, to the shore.
