RNLI  Funded by charitable donations, our lifeboat crews & lifeguards have been #SavingLivesAtSea since 1824.


On last week’s Saving Lives at Sea, we saw @whitbyrnli save a father and daughter swept out to sea; a body boarder with a dislocated shoulder rescued by our lifeguards; a selfie taker who had fallen into the Thames helped by the crew at @TowerRNLI and lots more. Don’t forget to tune in tonight for another brilliant episode: 8pm on @BBCTwo. #SavingLivesAtSea #RNLI #BBC2 #Charity #Lifeguards.

Tom Matson from Penlee Lifeboat Station has got 17 years experience as a volunteer lifeboat crew member so he knows his way around good kit. Here he is testing out the RNLI Hoody, part of the new RNLI + Finisterre collaboration, inspired by a shared love and respect for the sea. Find out more about @finisterreuk and see the rest of the range over on their site. 10% of sales of the collection will be donated to the RNLI.

Imogen Nash, ALB (All-Weather Lifeboat) & ILB (Inshore Lifeboat) volunteer crew at @rnlisalcombe had a shout earlier in the year to free a humpback whale off Slapton Sands. “You never know what the next shout might be, but it’s pretty cool when it’s to a 45ft humpback whale!” Imogen is wearing the RNLI Runswick Beanie from @finisterreuk, part of the RNLI + Finisterre collaboration #finisterreuk #rnli @finisterreuk @nigel_millard_studio

Tom Kay knows the importance of wearing kit that’s fit for purpose. When he’s not wearing the crew kit volunteering at St. Agnes Lifeboat Station, he’s wearing rugged fisherman jumpers to keep wind chills at bay. With 15 years under his belt as crew and as founder of @finisterreuk he knows his way around good kit. Check out the full range of men’s and women’s clothing in the limited edition RNLI + Finisterre collaboration out now. Finisterre will donate 10% of sales from the range to the RNLI.#finisterreuk #rnli @finisterreuk @nigel_millard_studio

Finisterre and RNLI have partnered to create an exclusive clothing range. The RNLI + Finisterre collaboration is inspired by a shared love and respect for the ocean, a seafaring heritage and the hardiness of the human spirit.

What a line up! Here's the Shannon, Tamar, Hovercraft, Atlantic 85 and D-class lifeboats from Fleetwood, Blackpool, Barrow and Morecambe at the Fleetwood open day.

Now this takes skill and training. Our crews work tirelessly with our partners the Coastguard so that we are always ready to save lives. Here's a fantastic shot of Shoreham RNLI's Tamar class All-Weather Lifeboat on a winch exercise with the Coastguard Search and Rescue helicopter based at Lee-on-the-Solent.

Over she goes! Here's an all-weather Shannon class lifeboat during capsize trials last week. #rnli #lifeboat #capsize #poolequay #charity #engineering

It’s a bit choppy out there! Here’s Bembridge lifeboat crew on their D class inshore lifeboat Norman Harvey D-778. They helped sailors stay safe during the 2017 Round the Island Race earlier this month.
