Walmer lifeboat volunteers have issued safety advice after rescuing a woman kayaker in the sea this morning.
Victoria Brophy, press spokeswoman for Walmer Lifeboat Station, said volunteers were paged this morning at 7.29am with a report that a female was clinging to the Goodwins Fork Buoy.
"She was seen by a passing yacht who skillfully got her aboard. They contacted Dover Coastguard who contacted us.
"She was brought ashore to Walmer Lifeboat Station where she is being treated."
The rescue operation took about 20 minutes.
Miss Brophy has urged sea users to tell someone when they are going into the sea and how long they expect to be. If they don't return by then that person should call the Coastguard.
If you encounter trouble while at sea, stay with your boat and stay in it on on top.
Ensure you always wear a life jacket.
