We at Solent Rescue are an independent Lifeboat organisation based at Lepe Country Park in Exbury, Hampshire.
The rescue organisation was established in 1971, initially as a beach rescue unit but has since developed into a rescue unit with both inshore and offshore rescue capabilities. As part of a wider framework of Independent and RNLI operated lifeboats on the South Coast, Solent Rescue helps to monitor approximately 33 square miles of the Central and Western Solent.
The Solent is an extremely busy recreational and commercial waterway and as such, demands dedicated, well trained lifeboat crews to assist the many people that can find themselves in difficulties.
We are operational at weekends from March until September, bank holidays and 24hrs during the festival of Cowes week.
