Byline: At 1418 hours on Friday 11th July 2014 Belfast Coastguard requested the launch of Helensburgh RNLI lifeboat after a member of the public informed them that there were two persons on one of the Navigation Buoys at the mouth of the River Leven.

On arrival the crew found two males clinging to the buoy plus another male in a 6′ dinghy with two dogs.  None of them were wearing lifejackets and two planks of wood were being used for oars.  Apparently they had been fishing in the River Leven however had been carried out into the river by the strong current and breeze.  The lifeboat crew took them all on board and landed them back at Sandpoint Marina along with the dinghy.
The lifeboat crew then returned to station and reported ready for service again at 1556 hours.
