Solent coastguard activity last night?

Morning.

Anyone have any idea what was going on in the Solent last night? Went out about 7 from hamble and was radio silence but couldn't hear what coastguard was saying. Helios was up over osbourne bay and across to wotton sevrerL times and lifeboats and hamble rescue were. Around also?

Was pretty breezy for sure but still managed to pull a few wakeboarders before blatting across the Solent he as the sun went down! Little less wind and it would have been perfect!

Just wondered what the activity was about as hit nothing from vh 16 and 67

Horns were sounding quite a bit too, couldn't make out the usual meanings, all seemed a bit random.

Allways give me a thrill to hear the engine bark at you when clearing the water
