The volunteer crew launched the lifeboat, Spirit of Loch Fyne, at 5.20pm. The lifeboat and coastguards found the teenagers ashore on the rock armour near Church Cliff east of the harbour

The lifeboat returned to harbour at 5.48pm. This was the 18th ‘shout’ for the lifeboat so far this year and the third incident during Lifeboat Week.
