Irish Lifeboats 2014

Slightly biased but I enjoyed this compilation video of Ireland's RNLI lifeboat crews who launched 1,089 times in 2014, bringing 1,414 people to safety.

Yes indeed and only one in ten people who join as crew members has a maritime background so if a volunteer doesn't know as much about your pride and joy as you do it is worth cutting them a bit of slack

If you fancy becoming a crew member or a volunteer in another capacity - go for it - check out this link for more details
