Call to three kayakers in the water

Location: River Dart. Off Warfleet Creek

Four kayakers had hired two double kayaks and made their way to the mouth of the river, accompanied by an instructor in a single kayak.They decided in view of the heavy swell and adverse tide to turn back at Warfleet.One kayak capsized and filled with water.The instructor also capsized as he tried to tow the vessel.The three were in the water for approximately 10 minutes and the alarm was sent to the Coastguard by a passing yacht.
