Latest launch information:1st August 2021
The crew of a boat anchored in Swanage Bay were concerned for the welfare of a swimmer just after midnight and called the UK Coastguard, who in turn asked for the Swanage D-class inshore lifeboat (ILB) to check the situation and help if necessary. The volunteer crew launched the boat and the swimmer was quickly located and helped back to shore, where Swanage coastguard volunteers had arrived to assist as well. With the situation resolved the ILB was able to return to station for a quick wash down before the crew returned to their homes.
