A windsurfer having difficulties in two to three metre swells off Oakville Harbour Sunday was rescued by a team from TOWARF, the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary Unit’s volunteer marine search and rescue, the Trenton Joint Rescue Coordination Centre and Halton Police’s Marine Unit.

Police received a call from concerned family members of the windsurfer, prompting the rescue about half a kilometre from the Oakville Harbour.

The windsurfer and his craft were brought safely back to shore.
