Exercise Launches

Our crew will be training with our new Shannon 13-46 in the coming weeks. You are welcome to come and see the lifeboat launch from a safe distance on the beach bank or beach; please keep clear of the lifeboat and SLRS and keep children and dogs under supervision. Exercises and training will be ad-hoc but we will try to post dates in advance when we can. All dates are subject to change for operational reasons.
