That might be a little unfair. I heard the extended version from RNLI so they were wearing wetsuits, and had bouyancy aids, although I bet they were cold. My understanding is that that two of the paddle boarders had gone on board the dinghy and it capsized as a result.
I've been out before from Stonehaven and seen paddle boarders heading down the coast. They don't realise the current outside the harbour bay and if they get tired, then they don't have many options with sheer cliffs.
Anyway - roughly this time last year RNLI called out to deal with a RIB that's possibly out of fuel? Takes all sorts I suppose.
