Lifeboat Crew Member

We are looking for lifeboat crews at Solent Rescue, based in Lepe country park.

Our crew are made up totally by volunteers from all walks of life and ages. We are always looking out for both shore and boat crew throughout the season. We are operational at weekends from throughout the year, in addition we cover holidays and other events around the Solent.

As crew you will train on both our D class and Arctic lifeboats as well as learning to launch and recover the boats with our tractor.


​Our boat crew are trained in safety at sea, power boat handling, first aid and all activities required to keep a lifeboat operational and lookout manned, however, don't worry, prior knowledge of seamanship is not essential as excellent training is offered. From the day you join the crew, you will be able to help in the operation of the boat & shore operations.

​We are always looking for volunteers to join us, either as one of our skilled boat crew, shore crew or why not join us as fundraiser... 

​If you are interested in joining, please register your interest now.
