Stranded Windsurfer Rescued By Coast Guard Near Davenport
(BANT) – A helicopter crew lifted a windsurfer to safety Monday evening on the coast of Davenport in unincorporated Santa Cruz County.
Cal Fire officials said the windsurfer was taken to the top of a cliff near Davenport Beach following a rescue by a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter crew.
Medics assessed the windsurfer and found he had no medical needs. He needed help because his sail was disabled.
The windsurfer was able to get to a beach but the tide and cliffs prevented him from getting himself to safety.
