Rowers save the day for kitesurfer

A team of rowers saved the day after a kitesurfer became separated from his kite.

They retrieved £700-worth of kitesurfing equipment, which was lost by Pete Jennings in Portland Harbour.

The crew of Weymouth Rowing Club gig Sir Tristan responded to a Coastguard appeal to help retrieve the 12-metre surfing kite.
