Latest launch information:22nd May 2019
The Swanage RNLI volunteers had just launched for their regular Wednesday evening training when the inshore lifeboat received a tasking. A speedboat in Swanage bay had called 999 when their engine failed and they started drifting in to Swanage Pier. The lifeboat was only a few minutes away and was quickly on scene. The boat was taken in tow back to the council slipway where they had launched earlier in the day. The lifeboat was then released and headed West to carry on with their training.
