Cameo club report: May 2018

From Jill Russell:

On 15th May we had a visit from Chas Tibble on behalf of Skegness RNLI.

He gave us a very enlightening presentation and slide show starting with the history of the lifeboat service, on our part of the east coast, beginning with the first boats manned by ten and then twelve oarsmen, up to the most modern Shannon class fibre glass boat, ‘The Joel and April Gunnill’, which went into commission in 2017.

He stressed that the majority of crew are volunteers, often with family tradition, who give up their time and risk their lives to save people at sea, regardless of the conditions. Statistics from 2016 show 431 lives were saved and 8643 people rescued for one reason or the other.

He showed us some amazing early photos of the rowing boats setting out in ginormous seas, a lifeboat first stationed at Gibraltar Point from 1825 then moving gradually up the coast to Tower Esplanade in 1990.              Continue reading
