    RNLI Hastings Lifeboat Station added 4 new photos.

    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.

    A great Hastings RNLI story from the 28th May 1904!
    ... Read moreSee less

    It's May 28th 1904. #OTD, the morale of the Hastings station was boosted in the summer of 1904 by the award of the RNLI's silver medal to Alfred 'Biddy' Stonham (later best known as 'Biddy the Tubman'). Biddy saved the life of Charles 'Doctor' Gallop, skipper of the fishing boat William and Maria, when she struck a harbour pile on May 28, 1904. The vessel sank almost immediately. Three of the four crew were rescued by a row boat, but 'Doctor' Gallop drifted off to the eastward. Biddy plunged into the sea, swam out to him and pulled him ashore, watched by a cheering crowd. Biddy was presented with the Institution's silver medal by the Mayor at a public meeting in the Market Hall a few weeks later. Photo shows the Hastings Lifeboat The Charles Arkcoll's crew, in about 1925. Left to right, standing: Coxswain Jack Plummer, George 'Louis' White, Tom Button, Alfred 'Biddy' Stonham, Fred 'Tedder' 'Thomas, Frank 'Ginger Daniel' Martin, Albert 'Black Daniel' Martin, Tom 'Sequoia' Baily, Tom 'Oxo' Richardson, 'Casher' Winborn. Seated: Jack 'Tush' Hamilton, Fred 'Pipe' Button (?), Mike Eason, John 'Spider' Stubberfield.

    Today sees the last day as an operational crew member for our 2nd Coxswain Graham Furness who retires today after nearly 44 years at Hastings Lifeboat!
    In his time here Graham has been ILB Helmsman, ALB Crew and most recently in his role as 2nd Coxswain. He has been involved in countless rescues and has been an integral part of the station.
    He will continue in a shore based role at Hastings helping with the training of our crew and in his new role as a Launching Authority!
    Thank you for everything, good luck and happy retirement Graham, From all at Hastings ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Yesterday, I spent a lovely afternoon visiting the RNLI Hastings Lifeboat Station for their Spring Fling and I couldn't resist the obligatory tea and homemade cake. It was delicious! We are very grateful and honoured to have such a brilliant lifeboat team in Hastings. Thank you for your continual hard work and dedication. #OldHastings.

    COFFEE TIME!

    Today has possibly seen the last launch and recovery of the Hastings Lifeboat by Ray Coffee our Deputy Head Launcher. Ray has been at the station for 30 years or so and has seen many different launchers and crew come and go. He has been an integral part of the station and has always found the time to help launch and recover our all weather lifeboats in all weathers and at all times of the day!
    Today sees not just Ray but also his son Gary and his granddaughter Chloe help safely launch and recover Sealink Endeavour!

    A massive thank you Ray, from all at Hastings Lifeboat Station, we are sad to see you go! Keep stopping by though, we are sure Steve can't do without you helping to polish the hull :)

    Last night crew, launchers and volunteers gathered at the Station for our Community Lifesaving presentation. The presentation, which was specifically for Hastings, was given by one of the RNLIs dedicated team members.

    What itโ€™s about!
    โ€œWe are good at saving lives at sea but despite our best efforts people are still drowning. Every year, around 170 people drown around the coast of the UK and Ireland and we know that we can help to save some of these lives.
    We need to think about lifesaving as more than just rescue; lifesaving is about how we influence, educate and supervise others too and we all have a role to play.
    The RNLI is gathering thousands of comments and ideas from staff and volunteers to help identify some common themes which need to be addressed. These include crew cover, crew training, communications and rewriting the Green Book and Divisional Working Practices (used by lifeboat stations)
    Ultimately we want local people to be able to identify for themselves how best to influence, educate, supervise and rescue people in their own communities!โ€

    Hastings ALB was requested to launch by Dover CG at 19:11 last night after they received a call from a local fishing vessel requesting assistance for a crew member with a back injury.

    The lifeboat and her volunteer crew located the vessel 6 miles SE of the station and after transferring 3 crew members on board to administer first aid and pain relief it was decided that due to the nature of the injury a helicopter evacuation would be the most appropriate and best for the casualty.
    The CG helicopter from Lydd was quickly scrambled and once the winch man was winched down and further pain relief given, the injured man was airlifted to hospital.
    The lifeboat and her volunteer crew returned back to the station around midnight.

    Everyone at RNLI Hastings wish the patient a speedy recovery!
