COWES RNLI Lifeboat came to the aid of a man whose jet ski suffered engine failure yesterday (Thursday).
A spokesman said: "The jet ski, with a young man at the controls, had suffered engine failure west of Gurnard Marsh yesterday afternoon. His attempt to then use a paddle to reach the shore proved ineffectual.
"As he and his machine began drifting further westward his plight was reported to Solent Coastguards by a passing yacht. After arriving on the scene Cowes lifeboat towed the jet ski to Gurnard Marsh."
The lifeboat was launched at 2.42 pm and returned to station at 3.20 pm.
