Kayaker rescued

A kayaker who got into difficulties just off the Old Bar yesterday afternoon after his craft capsized was rescued by a member of the Nairn Sailing Club. Charlie Robertson, 85, took the cold and wet man and his kayak back to the Harbour. Two RNLI lifeboats also attended the incident. Well done to all who took part and thankfully there was a positive outcome.

UPDATE: More information and details available here. Well done Charlie, life in the old sea dog yet!
