We are an Independent Lifeboat station based on the Isle of Wight.
On call to HMCG 365 days a year, we operate two Inshore lifeboats from our headquarters at Appley. As a declared service we attend a variety of incidents from boats running aground on the infamous Ryde Sands to children getting swept out to sea on inflatables in offshore winds.
Our team is made up of volunteers from all walks of life who share the common interest in wanting to help others. Training is to a high standard and the volunteers need to be able to give at least 1 day a week to ensure that they meet the requirements to become operational.
