    Wow, so many kind words and comments about our rescue of Storm this morning, we are overwhelmed, thank you so much!

    Storm had been missing since Sunday and many people have been involved in searching for him.
    One such person is Jenny and her Tracker dog Yogi. They tracked Storm to the Harbour area yesterday after Storms story was posted on Dog Lost www.doglost.co.uk/dog-blog.php?dogId=98044#.VrNq7arfXv6.
    Posters were being put up and handed out to members of the public today when Storm was spotted on the beach running into the sea. The lifeboat was then alerted and they got to him just in time!
    A massive well done to all involved

    Jenny Tiga BrownIt was a very distressing time in the circumstances for the owners and I was just so happy to have been able to help with my tracker dog Yogi but it was an all round team effort during the chain of events leading up to Storm's unexpected exploits and the amazingly quick rescue by you guys and the quick actions of the workmen who knew about Storm as a result of the team knowing where to put posters up - well maybe Yogi gave the DogLost team a clue as to where to poster. Well done everyone. Big hugs to Storm for a speedy recovery .

    Hastings ILB was requested to launch by Dover CG at 09:34 this morning after they received reports of a dog going into the water. Storm was chasing seagulls and had disappeared from view.

    The RNLI ILB and her volunteer crew launched within a few minutes and assisted by Hastings Coastguard they found him approx 1 mile off! Although wet, cold, weak and exhausted they managed to get Storm into the boat. He was taken swiftly back to station where he was reunited with his owner before going to Senlac Vets for a check up.
    Storm had been missing since Sunday and many worried people including his owners had been searching for him.
    Well done guys, a very lucky doggy ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Did you know that when our Coxswain Steve is on annual leave or on a weekend off his position has to be covered by one of his deputy's?

    This Saturday is covered by Graham our 2nd Coxswain. Graham retired from his job as a Highways Manager a few years ago and in his spare time he is a keen angler.
    Sunday is covered by Sloane our Deputy 2nd Coxswain. Sloane is a full time HEMS Paramedic on KSS Air Ambulance and in her free time she enjoys walking her dogs and cycling and is also a keen snowboarder.
    Mike our Mechanic is covering all weekend. He is Assistant Manager in Marriots Camera Shop and in his free time he enjoys walking his dogs and sampling the odd real ale

    They are all volunteers along with the rest of our dedicated crew!

    A massive thank you to Maya, Eva and Lenny for raising ยฃ280.50 for Hastings Lifeboat. The money was raised by cooking and selling fish pies.
    They presented our Coxswain Steve with the money this evening and had a quick tour of the station at the same time!
    Big thanks guys :)

    HASTINGS LIFEBOAT STATION TO RECEIVE STATE OF THE ART LIFEBOAT!

    We are really pleased & excited to announce that Hastings has been allocated a new Shannon Class Lifeboat, the latest in the RNLI's all-weather fleet.
    It will replace the smaller Mersey class lifeboat โ€˜Sealink Endeavourโ€™ which has been the towns all weather boat since 1989.

    The Shannon is the RNLIโ€™s first all-weather lifeboat to be powered by water jets rather than traditional propellers, giving it increased agility and manoeuvrability. With a top speed of 25 knots it is 50% faster than the Mersey class lifeboat it will replace.

    This all means Hastings lifeboat crew will be able to reach those in peril at sea more quickly. It also has a raft of features that make it safer for volunteer crews to operate in the roughest of sea conditions when they are risking their own safety to save others.

    The ILB and her volunteer crew quickly launched and started a shoreline search. Thankfully the missing person was found safe and the ILB stood down.

    Our Coxswain Steve has been busy again today!
    It's important at a carriage station that the beach is ploughed regularly to ensure the lifeboat launches safely. Steve spends several hours a week grading the beach.
    He also helped out with unloading our Stores and Shop deliveries which included everything from WD-40 to our popular RNLI Christmas cards! Come down and purchase your cards from our RNLI shop before they go?

    RNLI Hastings Lifeboat Station shared their event.

    Tomorrows exercise is now confirmed as a Helo Exercise with the Coastguard SAR Flight from Lydd, Kent!
    The aircraft will RVP with the Lifeboats close to the Harbour shortly after 6pm (Subject to Operations) and will be carrying out drills with both the ALB and ILB.

    Please note: The helicopter crew dictate the course to steer for the winching drills, therefore the exercise may not be close to or parallel with the shore.
