The group managed to make it onto Coquet Island, but due to the weather conditions they were unable to make it safely back into Amble harbour.

The Amble RNLI lifeboat reached the group on Coquet Island and took them safely back to Amble Harbour where they were met by Amble Coastguard who carried out a welfare check and offered advice.
