The weather was kind for our trip to Newcastle.
Storrar Marine organised a terrific RNLI fund-raising event, with
lots of generous sponsors. All we had to do was get there, talk
and sign books. The evening was a great success and so far
they've raised over half the £9,000 needed to replace the
lifejackets for the Tynemouth lifeboat crew.|
The following day we visited the lifeboat station and were treated to a spin in their all weather lifeboat. Bouncing along at 25 knots in a mere force 6 with good visibility, we could but imagine the demands of rescuing a casualty in stormy conditions. Here we are with two of the crew and Rob Storrar (behind Paul).
