During May we received nine requests from the coastguard to launch, including to two separate incidents of yachts taking on water, we also had more fantastic support from our local community fundraisers including those completing their Mayday challenges, and we were truly humbled by the number of boats participating in the Parade of Sail, and the hundreds who lined the quayside – thank you.

Stay safe, enjoy but Respect the Water!
