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.
