Latest launch information:25th November 2019
Swanage’s D Class inshore lifeboat (ILB) was requested to launch just before lunch today. A person had been reported as being in difficulties at the Northern end of Swanage Bay. The ILB launched and was quickly on scene. Volunteers from Swanage Coastguard and officers from Dorset Police had been able to locate the casualty and with the swell on the beach it was decided that the best route for evacuation would be land rather than sea. Once the casualty was clear of the beach the ILB was released to return to station.
