A windsurfer in difficulties off the El Médano coast was rescued by lifeboat around 8pm yesterday. Emergency services were called with reports that the sportsman was in trouble and unable to get back into land. Weather conditions meant that a sea rescue helicopter was unable to assist, and the windsurfer was therefore collected by the lifeboat Salvamar Alpheratz and taken to Los Cristianos. The rescued man is said to be in good health and did not require medical assistance.
