The Coast Guard was called to help locate five people who drifted out to sea in a dinghy.
Members of the public expressed concern that a small dinghy was quickly drifting out to sea.
RNLI Eastbourne were asked to launch their coastal lifeboat at 7.25pm on Wednesday 13 July to locate the group.
The volunteer crew located the dinghy and five people on board.
“All individuals have been found safe and well,” said a spokesman for the RNLI Eastbourne.
“The victims received safety instructions from the lifeboat crew and to the Coast Guard’s satisfaction, our coast lifeboat and volunteer crew were detached and returned to the station.”
On Monday, the Coast Guard was called to assist in the search for six missing people in less than two hours.
RNLI Eastbourne was initially tasked with assisting in the search for a missing person on the coast near Beachy Head who was eventually found safe and sound.
Less than two hours later, the RNLI Eastbourne volunteer crew was called out after reports were sighted of five people going into the sea near Eastbourne Pier.
A search of the area was conducted and it was confirmed that the group had made it safely ashore.
