Next All-weather lifeboat (AWB) exercise:
22nd June 2015 at 6.30pm. This will be our first exercise with the new Coastguard Sikorski helicopter from it’s Caernarvon base.
Next Inshore boat (ILB) exercise:
Normally (depending on weather conditions) the ILB will exercise Sunday mornings about 10am to 12 noon, and also with the AWB on exercise.
Did you know? The lifeboat is crewed by volunteers.
When a call comes in, crew members may be at work, or at home. The coastguard pages the crew and they jump into action, attending the lifeboat station as quickly as they can do safely. Once at the station a ﬂurry of activity occurs: the best team for the job from the available crew is picked arrangements are made to ready the boats and tractors whilst the crew are kitting up communication is maintained with the Coastguard to get as much information as possible the boats leave the boathouse as preparations for launching continue along the beach LAUNCH !
