Poole’s inshore lifeboat was out and about on the water on Bank Holiday Sunday (30 August).
Both Poole lifeboats were launched just after 3.30pm on 21 June to a report that a 24-foot yacht was pinned against the chain ferry that carries passengers and vehicles across the entrance to Poole Harbour.
With the fine weather continuing in Dorset, there has been no respite for the RNLI crews.
Both Poole lifeboats were launched at 1.30pm on Sunday 31 May by UK Coastguard following a Mayday call from a six-metre speedboat with four people on-board. And this was just the start of a very hectic day.
With people getting out on the water as lockdown rules are gradually eased, Poole Lifeboat crew has already been in action after a jet ski broke down with two people onboard.
Despite people being asked to stay at home to save lives during the coronavirus pandemic, Poole lifeboat was tasked just after 5pm on 8 May to a report that a kayaker was in distress.
