Although all Poole Lifeboat Station’s usual fundraising activities have been cancelled and the station and Old Lifeboat Museum is closed to visitors as a result of the pandemic, you can still take part in the virtual Open Week which runs until 2 August.
Both Poole lifeboats were launched at 4.40pm on 13 July when a catamaran with three people on board became entangled in ropes at the bottom of Evening Hill in 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.
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.
