Visitors will have a chance to see the RNLI’s lifeboats at the Queen’s Drive station from 10am on Sunday, August 13.
There is an open day coming up at Exmouth Lifeboat Station on Queen’s Drive.
Running from 10am to 4pm on Sunday, August 13, you will be able to see both the D class inshore lifeboat George Bearman II and Shannon class lifeboat R and J Welburn.
Hosted by Exmouth lifeboat station volunteers, there will also be fundraising and information stalls and refreshments from local supporting businesses, Krispies and Antonio’s. There will also be a demonstration of a man overboard rescue with the inshore lifeboat and RNLI Lifeguards in front of the station (subject to operational requirements). You can bring your lifejacket along for the RNLI community safety team to check that it is in good working order.
“Admission is free, but bring lots of money to help us save lives at sea,” says an Exmouth RNLI spokesperson.
There’s no parking at the lifeboat station; nearest car park is Foxholes. The 95 bus and Exmouth Land Train stop outside.
