Brandon CrowI used to skipper one of these. It's a Catalac 9m catemeran. Lovely boats with lots of space, but they can be very uncomfortable when taking a swell beam on. One hull drops in the trough of the wave while the other is on the peak. It's not going to fall over, but you certainly get thrown about. And as they are so shallow draught (less than 3 feet) they don't do well when beating into the wind under sail. I'm sure they were very grateful for the help. Well done guys.

RNLI Hastings Lifeboat Station added a new photo to the album Meet the crew!

Name: Pete
Date joined: 2010
Occupation: Engineer
Crew position: ILB Helmsman and ALB crew / Navigator
Why you joined: Pete says "I spent many years at the Lifeboat Station when I was younger as my dad was Coxswain there until 2002. I wanted to join when I was old enough but it wasnt until a few years ago that I moved closer to the station and I was able to start"

Most memorable job: "My First Job!" Pete remembers his first service call really clearly and goes on to recall "it was in the early hours of the morning when the ILB was called to a report of a boat in trouble. We got to the scene where there was no sight of a boat but we spotted a person in the water...the boat had sank beneath him! It went on record as a 'life saved'. It was a good job!"

Whats it like being involved with Hastings Lifeboat? Pete says "Its been really rewarding being part of the team at Hastings and being able to carry on the family involvement with the RNLI"

Interests: Sailing and "being a dad"

Describe yourself/your life?: I keep really busy with my job, my sailing, being involved with the Lifeboat and now being a proud father to two beautiful girls. Married. A fan of Moet and Merlot"
