    Hastings All Weather Lifeboat was requested to launch at 17:33 yesterday evening after the Coastguard received reports of a small angling vessel in trouble.
    The ALB quickly located the vessel which came from Rye Harbour and took her and her occupants safely under tow. However with a falling tide they would be unable to get into Rye so the boat was safely anchored off of Hastings Harbour and the occupants brought ashore.
    It will be recovered today

    RNLI Hastings Lifeboat Station shared Hastings Coastguard Rescue team's post.

    Great pictures from today's dog rescue courtesy of Hastings Coastguard
    ... Read moreSee less

    ‼️📟‼️ 04/09/16 1348hrs - the team were tasked by Dover Coastguard following a report of a dog having gone over the cliff at Eccelesbourne Glen. Due to the possibility of a technical rope rescue, Rye Bay CRT were tasked to back us up. Our team quickly arrived on scene and located the dog, which was on the beach having fallen 20-30ft over the cliff. Fortunately, the dog appeared to have sustained no injuries. Due to the location and given the sea/tide state, it was decided that the safest way to recover the dog, was by sea, so we requested the assistance of Hastings inshore lifeboat. The lifeboat quickly arrived on scene, and put a member of their crew on shore to recover the dog. The RNLI crewman and dog then swam out to the waiting lifeboat, and the boat returned to the lifeboat station to be reunited with her owners. Another positive outcome today. Please remember to keep your dogs on leads when walking near cliffs, as dogs sometimes don't realise the dangers they put themselves in!

    Hastings ILB was requested to launch at 0409 this morning for reports of a person in the water 100yards south of Hastings Skate Park.
    With the ALL Weather Lifeboat placed on 'immediate readiness' to assist if needed, the ILB and her 3 crew launched in the dark into rough conditions (SW 6, gusting 7) and were quickly on scene.

    Sussex Police, South East Coast Ambulance Service & Hastings Coastguard were also on scene but had lost sight of the casualty from the shore, so the ILB put up two white parachute flares to illuminate the area and soon located him.
    The casualty was quickly hauled on board and taken safely ashore through the surf to awaiting Paramedics on the beach.

    With conditions too rough to re-launch the recovery vehicle made its way to scene to recover the ILB from the shore.
    Everyone safely back at station at 0535
    Great effort by all Emergency Services involved #teamwork

    Andrew ParryCan't give enough thanks to the Hastings crew, and the crews of MFVs Orion and KT for their help with for my son. Luckily we were fairly well equipped and I was able to call Mayday on my VHF as soon as I realised my son could not self-rescue in the increasingly lumpy conditions. Please please please no - one go out on kayaks without at the very least a phone in a waterproof case and wear a lifejacket . My son would probably be dead now if we had not had the right kit and the right help.

    It is with deep sadness that we share this news with you all. The RNLI gold medal posthumously awarded to William Trevelyan Richards, Coxswain of the ill fated lifeboat 'Solomon Browne' has gone missing, suspected stolen. The medal was recently identified as missing from a dedicated secure facility at the charity's head office in Poole. Despite an extensive search the medal is still missing and police have been notified of a suspected theft. This medal is of huge historical importance to our station, to the families of the crew who lost their lives so heroically, to the wider community of Mousehole & Newlyn, the RNLI and beyond. Trevelyan's gold medal is irreplaceable and our priority is to see it returned to his family as soon as possible. If you have any information as to the current whereabouts of this medal, or can assist in anyway please contact Dorset Police by calling 101, quoting incident number 02:136. Information can also be reported anonymously to CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555111, or via the RNLI on 0300 300 9990. Please spread the word and help us to get Trevelyan's medal back where it belongs - thank you. rnli.org/NewsCentre/Pages/RNLI-in-appeal-for-missing-gold-medal-awarded-to-Penlee-coxswain.aspx

    On this day, 29th August 1964, a new Oakley-class lifeboat came into service at #Hastings RNLI Hastings Lifeboat Station. @RNLI She was built by Osborne's of Littlehampton and was later named 'Fairlight'. This is a scan of a photograph of her taken in the 1960s by my Uncle (John Folkes), and is one of two of his of the lifeboat that hang on my wall.

    Sandra DiamondAs the family being discussed here I would like to say a huge thank you to the guys at RNLI and the Coastguards who were amazing, we can't thank you enough. What a fantastic bunch you all are. To Molly and Oleta - our heartfelt thanks - I'm glad your names are on here as we didn't know where to find you to say thank you. Without you we faced many hours stuck on the rocks. In answer to others, it is easy to judge (as we do often ourselves) - we have done this walk many times as it's a favourite and always check the tides - low tide being 3.10 on Sunday. We walked from Pett Level to Fairlight Glen across the cliffs arriving at the beach around 4.00. We then walked for over an hour along the beach back towards Pett. What we found was considerable rock fall at one headland, barring our way. We hadn't done the walk since before winter and hadn't encountered this previously. Much of the beach seems to have disappeared under rock fall now. We then walked back to Fairlight Glen and were told that it was about a 40 min walk to Hastings. We then encountered considerable rock fall at Ecclesbourne Glen near the end of our journey. This sadly was too large and dangerous to attempt to climb over. By then we didn't judge it safe to try and attempt to return to Fairlight Glen as it was getting late, there was an onshore wind and high tide was 10. Luckily Molly and Oleta arrived and made the call as we had no signal. As a family of very strong swimmers and seasoned walkers of that region, calling out the RNLI was the last thing we ever expected to have to do but I and my family now have even greater respect for the work that the RNLI and the Coast Guards do as volunteers.I for one will never be so quick to judge other people's difficulties again and am so pleased that the team don't either as you just never know. Sandra, Tony, Christopher and Thomas.

    A busy evening for our volunteer crews!
    Our ILB was paged at 19:07 to assist a sailing dingy in difficulty. Quickly on scene the crew rigged a tow and brought the boat safely back to the beach by the Motor Boat & Yacht Club at Rock a Nore.

    The ILB was paged once again at 20:08 after Dover CG received reports of a paraglider ditching in the water. The ILB quickly launched again but with the failing light our ALB also launched to assist.
    Along with Pett Level Independent Rescue Boat a thorough multi ship search of the area was carried out but with nothing found the boats were stood down.
    Aldo in attendance Hastings & Rye Bay Coastguard teams.
    Both boats refuelled and ready for service again at 00:30

    House HouseRNLI should seriously question the council in Camber as to whether having 'Beach patrol' dressed in 'lifeguard colours and clothing' is fundamentally misleading to the public. In many ways they try to look like the RNLI but without the training.

    Fiona StewartSo sad that it all comes down to money. The RNLI and coastal lifeguards should be government funded! These people at RNLI have to rely on donations and I believe most of the team are volunteers. Disgusting! We are an island surrounded by water, this needs to be patrolled to save people's life's.

    A short video of our Launch Crew preparing for the recovery of our ALL Weather Lifeboat last night!
    The video highlights the hard work that goes on whilst the crew are afloat!
    At a carriage launched station the lifeboat couldn't get afloat or be recovered without the team, thanks guys! 😊

    HAPPENING THIS WEEKEND - LIFEBOAT STATION OPEN DAY AND BLACKSMITHS ON THE BEACH!

    We are unashamedly still promoting our Open Day happening this Sunday - 10th July 11am-4pm!
    A fantastic opportunity to go on the Lifeboats and meet the crew.

    Also happening this weekend is the fabulous 'Blacksmiths on the Beach Event' - 8th, 9th and 10th July at The Stade.
    Hastings-based sculptor Leigh Dyer, in collaboration with the British Artist Blacksmiths Association (BABA), will produce a new piece of public art at this live blacksmithing event.
    The sculpture, which will rise like the prow of a Norman longboat out of the shingle, incorporates a time capsule of letters from local residents to friends, family and the community, to be opened in 2066 on the 1000th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings. The event will include opportunities to try your hand at forging, including a fully safe children’s forge.

    Hastings ILB was paged at 12:30 today after a small angling vessel became disabled and started taking on water.

    The ILB and her volunteer crew quickly located the vessel which was approximately 1 mile east of the lifeboat station.
    The vessel was taken under tow as a matter of urgency and recovered safely back to the beach at the East Hastings Sea Angling Association.

    Terry Huggins100 years ago the lifeboat was often towed on its trolley to West St Leonards to be launched. I assume this was because it was quicker than rowing it from the Old Town and that if the emergency was to the East the boat was launched from the Stade area. Can anyone confirm this?

    4 years ago   ·  1
    Avatar

    RNLI Hastings Lifeboat StationHi Terry, I have just spoken with an ex coxswain who confirmed that yes, the boat could often be launched quicker and safer if towed to a more suitable launching place. Launch sites were always dependant on weather and type/condition of casualty vessel

    Robin SilmanOf the 19 lifeboats that took part in the Dunkirk evacuation, I understand that only Margate (Lord Sutherland) & Ramsgate (Prudential) were manned by their own crews. Was it a RN crew that took yours?

    Deborah Ann TubbYes, Cyril & L Bishop was manned by an RNLI crew. Closer lifeboats went straight over, western boats including Hythe went wtih RNLI crew owing to Naval problem in Dover - Hythe Coxswain unfairly dismissed for his part. Long story! Details on sussexhistoryforum.co.uk

    A short video of our All Weather Lifeboat launching on Service on Tuesday night!

    This was a 'low water, falls launch' meaning that the MB Talus Tractor has to push the Lifeboat and her launching carraige out far enough to get some deep water! Even then the flat sea bed means the carraige can't tilt like it normally can so the Falls Ropes act as a type of catapault. When the Talus Tractor reverses hard it propells the lifeboat off the carraige! Hope that explains it simply?

    Video courtesy of one of our launch crew Mick Wickwar! Thanks Mick :)

    They launched after Dover CG received an alert from the 20metre Survey Vessel 'Sea Mink' which was taking on water and had stability problems South East of Hastings.

    The ALB was tasked to assist with pumping water and to escort the vessel which was still making way and trying to head towards the port of Dover. However no assistance was required by our volunteer crew so the escort was transferred to RNLI Dungeness Lifeboat station.

    A busy weekend for our volunteer crew so far!

    ILB was paged at 0550 on Saturday to a distressed person in the water off the De La Warr pavilion in Bexhill. On scene, volunteer crew liaised with Bexhill Coastguard and Bexhill Police to recover the casualty to an awaiting ambulance for a checkover.

    On Sunday the ILB was once more paged to assist with an upturned catamaran approx 1/4 mile south of the pier. Once on scene, crew transferred over but could not right the vessel so decided to tow as it was to shore where more crew were waiting to assist. When he owner was happy with the re-rigging of sail, he attempted to make his own way back to his launch site, however in a brisk SW breeze found it too difficult, so a tow was rigged and he was brought back to shore where he arranged transport for the vessel.

    Many people attended throughout the day contributing to its success.

    Along with selling Tea, Coffee and Cakes we had Shanty Singers,  singing from ‘Now & Then’ A Capella Group, an Easter Bonnet parade and Best Decorated Egg Competition

    A massive thank you to all the Lifeboat volunteers who helped make the day such a success including the Society, crew and launchers, the Easter Bunny, the singers and to everyone who turned up to support us.  It was a great day
