The speed and agility of the D class is put to the test here by St Agnes lifeboat crew but performs superbly, even though it’s a little damp for the crew. Our volunteers were facing the rough conditions during a search for a surfer swept out to sea, who was later found safely back on shore. Our crew are able to receive first class training and be fully equipped, so that they can handle conditions such as this, thanks to generous donations from our supporters. We could not save lives at sea without them. #RNLI #Lifeboats #Rescue #Training #Charity #Donations

Hopefully this summer we’ll be blessed with a little more sunshine than we’ve already had so far. Here @poolelifeboats Atlantic 85 works alongside @swanagelifeboat in a recent training session as the sun glistens on the calm sea. 📸 @watchandshoot_lifeboats

At 10.30am today, our volunteers and staff across the UK and Ireland joined the French community in remembering the three @sauveteurs_en_mer rescue crew members who tragically lost their lives last week. 
The French President, Emmanuel Macron, attended a gathering at Les Sables-d’Olonne, the location where the rescue boat capsized. A minute’s silence was held, followed by the maritime community sounding its foghorns around the French coast. 
In solidarity our lifeboat stations and lifeguard units lowered their flags to half-mast as a mark of respect and at our Support Centre in Poole staff members observed the silence, led by Community Lifesaving Director John Payne, at the RNLI Memorial Sculpture.

Our crews get to see some sights and this one is just stunning.

To those that we rescue the sight of a lifeboat coming to them is the light at the end of the tunnel. For our volunteer crew local knowledge can make all the difference in reaching someone in time or not. As part of training exercises, crews are always improving their local knowledge, as pictured here with @official_kinsale_lifeboat entering a cave at the Old Head of Kinsale, County Cork. #Kinsale #Cave #Volunteering #LocalKnowledge #RNLI

The weather has been a little mixed lately but when we see rainbows like this it’s a pretty sight to see. 
With both ends so bright which end should we start searching for the pot of gold though? #rnli #rainbow #rain #clouds #savinglivesatsea #weather #sky #trent #lifeboat 📸Andrew Jamieson

A special moment when hundreds turned out to welcome Clogherhead's new Shannon lifeboat on Sunday. The lifeboat has been funded by an Irish legacy, named after an Irish lifeboat volunteer, designed by an Irish engineer and is the first class to be called after an Irish river. The 'Michael O’Brien' Shannon lifeboat also arrived in Clogherhead at exactly 13.31 hours, which is its operational number.
The €2.5 million lifeboat has a top speed of 25 knots, cutting vital minutes off the time it takes for the lifeboat crew to reach a casualty. A significant proportion of the funding for the new lifeboat has been provided through a legacy by Wexford farmer, Henry Tomkins, a lifelong supporter of the RNLI. Henry stipulated that a lifeboat be named for his friend, former Arklow RNLI Coxswain Michael O’Brien. #Shannon #Lifeboats #Clogherhead #Arklow #Ireland

Like all of our lifeguards, @rnli_lifeguards_n.ireland have been busy training over recent months, preparing themselves for being back on the beaches, where they can keep visitors safe. They practice how to carry out rescue, administer casualty care and deliver vital safety messages. If you’re planning a visit to the beach for the bank holiday weekend, make sure you choose a lifeguarded one. #Lifeguards #BeachSafety #RespectTheWater #Sea #Training #Rescue

Regular training for crew is vital, so that they are always prepared for what they face out at sea. The crew at @st_davids_rnli are shown in this photo taken by @nigel_millard_studio lowering a cradle to carry out a person overboard exercise during one of their training evenings #Lifeboats #Training #Exercise #StDavids #Lifesavers
