At 22.00 , The Doolin Coast Guard Unit was tasked by MRCC Valentia to an incident at Lahinch. A small upturned watercraft was seen about 400m off the shore at Lahinch. The team assembled , some went to Lahinch and others took the D-Class boat by road to Liscannor where the boat was launched. In the meantime a swimmer made himself known to Coast Guard Personnel in Lahinch and explained that he had been out with the  kayak a short time earlier. He had fallen off  and let go of the kayak as he felt he was being  pulled out, he then left the kayak and swam into shore. The boat crew retrieved the kayak and took it into Lahinch Beach. The team returned to base.
