Latest launch information:14th January 2019
The first service call of 2019 for the inshore lifeboat (ILB) was received just before midday today, Mon 14 January. An immediate launch of the ILB was requested following reports of a person in the water at Peveril Point. The lifeboat crew were paged and were ready to launch 9 minutes later. However as the lifeboat was being lowered down the slipway it became apparent that the person had managed to recover themselves. The lifeboat crew stood by at the water’s edge until it was confirmed that the situation was resolved. The lifeboat was the recovered back to the boathouse and the volunteers went back to work.
