A windsurfer who went missing during Storm Lorenzo made his own way to shore on Thursday evening.
The Fenit RNLI was launched to search for the windsurfer, who was reported missing off Brandon Bay.
The volunteer lifeboat crew were requested just before 7.30pm by the Irish Coast Guard.
Another windsurfer raised the alarm, after he lost sight of his partner for four minutes.
The lifeboat launched with six crew members and made its way to the scene, some 14 nautical miles from the station.
The Rescue 115 helicopter from Shannon was also tasked along with Dingle Coast Guard.
The lifeboat was almost at the scene when communication came through that the windsurfer had made it to shore by himself - and was safe and well.
The lifeboat was subsequently stood down.
Speaking following the call out Ger O'Donnell, Fenit RNLI lifeboat operations manager, said: "Thankfully, we had a good outcome this evening and the windsurfer was located safe and well.
"We would remind everybody to take note of the weather forecast and 'Stay Back - Stay Dry - Stay High'.
"If you see someone in difficulty or are concerned about somebody's whereabouts on or near the water use VHF channel 16 or dial 112, and ask for the Coast Guard."
