Operational Area

Lymington Lifeboat Station

 

For over 52 Years an inshore lifeboat has covered an area of the western Solent, the eastern Sector of Christchurch Bay and out to the Needles.

We work in conjunction with our mainland flank stations at Mudeford and Calshot and Isle of Wight flank stations at Yarmouth and Cowes with whom we regularly exercise.

Apart from being on call 24/7/365, our crew and associated flank stations provide immediate rescue options for a number of major yacht events including the annual Round the Island Race.
