Volunteers at RNLI Whitstable have saved two men who were stranded at sea.
The lifeboat was launched following a report of a catamaran that had capsized near Tankerton, Whitstable.
It is thought the two men had been unable to right the craft.
The lifeboat arrived at the scene at about 1.30pm on Friday to find them standing on the craft's hull, after having been in the water for a short time.
The volunteer crew helped them right the craft, by lifting the mast and sail from the water.
One of the sailors went into the water, but was subsequently returned to his catamaran by the RNLI crew.
The lifeboat then escorted the craft ashore to the Tankerton Bay Sailing Club, where Herne Bay Coastguard Rescue Team was waiting.
The lifeboat then returned to the station.
