Were they normal Rnli or the Rnli beach lifeguards perhaps on a training /refresher course ,,as the lifeguards have to show proficency every few months or so ,i know in the north region they use the old closed down lifeboat station at teesmouth and our club slipway and yard every now and again for a couple of days and they bring along a good number of craft to train and keep the lifeguards up to scratch and to see if they are still competant enough in the p.w.c and the small Arancia ribs.,,,of which unlike the normal RNLI inshore lifeboats the engines are NOT immersion profed in event of a capsize .
