Rescue teams have saved a stranded windsurfer who got into difficulty crossing the Firth of Forth.
Lifeboats from Anstruther were called out on Friday night after a man was spotted in the water south of the May island.
An onlooker noticed the lone windsurfer while looking through a telescope from their nearby home before dialling 999 to alert the Coastguard.
After locating the windsurfer ten miles from Anstruther, the decision was made by rescue teams to take the man to the safety of Dunbar harbour.
The volunteer crew at Dunbar launched their inshore lifeboat to assist with the journey into a narrow and blustery harbour mouth.
Crew member Shelley Watson said: ‘We would like to praise the efforts of the caller who not only spotted the windsurfer in difficulty but dialled 999 and asked for the Coastguard.
“If you see anyone in difficulty, we ask that you too do as this person did and dial 999 and get help to the person.”
