Man rescued after jet ski incident in the Solent

March 1962 and a naval rating signals Halt to more conventional traffic as the Saunders-Roe SRN1 crosses the seafront at Lee-on-the-Solent and returns to HMS Ariel, now the site of the Hovercraft Museum. Roles such as anti-submarine warfare, air-sea rescue and mine countermeasures were foreseen.						                                Pictures courtesy Amberley Publishing

Have your say

A MAN has been rescued after his jet ski had an electrical fault.

Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue Service sent its Inshore Lifeboat to the jet skier, who was heading to Cowes, Isle of Wight, from Portsmouth at 8am.

The lifeboat crew rescued the owner and took him and the Eleanor, a Seadoo 215 jet ski, to Wooten Creek, Isle of Wight.

The experienced jet-skier was well equipped for his journey and was on the way to Cowes to participate in a shore-based sea survival course.

The lifeboat returned to its station in Stokes Bay at 9.25am.
