RNLI  We're asking people to share the #FloatToLive skill and help saves lives #RespectTheWater

Everyone who falls into cold water unexpectedly wants to follow the same instinct: to swim hard and fight the water. But when you fight it, the chances are, you’ll lose. Instead you need to stay calm and #FloatToLive. Today we are launching our #RespectTheWater campaign for 2018 - find out more by clicking the link in the bio #RNLI #SurvivalSkills #ColdWater #StaySafe

No less than three of our lifeboat crew have been invited to today's royal nuptials: Chris Page from @porthcawlrnli, Becky Cannon from Ramsgate RNLI, and David Thomas from The Mumbles Lifeboat RNLI. We love a good wedding. In fact, many a happy couple have found true love through volunteering at the RNLI... #RNLI #Lifeboats #Love #RoyalWedding #Porthcawl #Ramsgate #Mumbles

This beautifully captured shot of @north_devon_rnli_lifeguards keeping a watchful eye over swimmers on a foggy day was taken by @OddSnaps. Our lifeguards patrol over 240 beaches across the UK and Channel Islands. They receive world class training so that they are always ready to #SaveLivesAtSea and deliver safety messages to prevent people from getting into trouble. If you’re heading to the beach this weekend, make sure you visit a lifeguarded beach – you can find your nearest one here: rnli.org/beaches #rnli #beachsafety #lifeguards #northdevon #RedAndYellowFlags

Every year, visitors to the coast find themselves cut off by the tide. It can be a frightening experience. Please stay safe out there, for tide times and safety advice visit RNLI.org/beaches #rnli #tides #coastalwalking #rescues #beachsafety #safetyadvice

Some of the UK’s most celebrated landmarks have gone yellow this month, showing their support for our annual Mayday fundraising campaign. Sites including #CricciethCastle, @theSpinnakerTower, @nlwales and even all 158m of @theblackpooltower made a truly striking sight after dark, reminding residents and visitors to ‘do your bit, fund our kit’ and help to fundraise for essential kit for our volunteer lifeboat crews. To find out more about why it’s #MaydayEveryDay for us visit the link in our bio.

Here’s the historic moment at Girvan RNLI’s naming ceremony for their new lifeboat last weekend, when four different classes of all-weather lifeboat lined up. Here you can see Girvan’s new Shannon, Barra’s Severn, Portpatrick’s Tamar, and Troon’s Trent. Our all-weather lifeboats are capable of high speed and can be operated safely in all weather conditions. Photo credit: Nicholas Leach #Lifeboats #RNLI #Girvan #Barra #Portpatrick #Troon

What’s next to go yellow for Mayday? The largest castle in England! @englishheritage Dover Castle will be lit yellow this evening in support of #MaydayEveryDay If the stunning sight inspires you to do your bit and fund our kit, visit the link in our bio.

The volunteer crew at Hunstanton RNLI on their rescue hovercraft. The inshore rescue hovercraft can reach areas inaccessible to conventional lifeboats, extending our lifesaving capability around the coast. Typically, the hovercraft operates on large areas of tidal mudflats or sand where the surface is too soft to support land vehicles and where the water is too shallow for boats. We have four stations that have a hovercraft, @hoylakelifeboat, @hunstanton_rnli, @morecambernli and @southendrnli .

This week, we’re running a special event to test the use of drones in a variety of real-life search and rescue scenarios with our colleagues at the Maritime and Coastguard Agency. From searches for multiple casualties out at sea, to shoreline searches and even a mud rescue exercise, we’re running a range of authentic scenarios to see how drones could help save lives in the future. #RNLI #drone #aerialvideo #searchandrescue #SaveLivesAtSea #rescue

This striking image of the old and new boathouses at @st_davids_rnli is by Jack Lowe (@lordlowe). It is now on show at @nlwales, where it sits alongside powerful images of lifeboat crew and stations from @aberlifeboat, @new_quay_rnli, Angle and Tenby.
The free exhibition of Jack’s work forms part of the #YearOfTheSea, a celebration of the epic Welsh coastline led by @visitwales.
By downloading the @_smartify App, visitors to the exhibition can also access additional content – including audio interviews with volunteer crew that Jack makes to accompany his photographs.
There is a Lifeboat Fun Day at the Library this Saturday, April 28, to mark the exhibition. It runs from 11 to 3, and Jack will be on hand throughout the day, giving demonstrations of his unique style of photography. Come along!
Jack’s been on the road for three years creating his #LifeboatStationProject. He is nearly half way through his epic challenge to capture all 238 RNLI stations using a Victorian method of photography that makes images on glass.

Today is #LondonLifeboatDay! If you're in the city, you may see our fundraisers out and about with their collecting buckets. People are sometimes surprised to see us in the capital, but we've been saving lives on the Thames since 2002. #RNLI #fundraising #SavingLivesAtSea #charity #london
