Why not go along to your local RNLI station with a view to joining the crew and get some training there?

If you explain your situation and say you realise you live toofar away to be crew but would like to help out on exercises as a shorehelper and learn the basics I'm sure they would help?

chewys right,suprizing how many shore crew and tractor drivers lived in leeds and bradford areas at one time, if they had a caravan at the coast ,,it gave the local crew a bit of time off on a weekend , one shore crew member lives or did live over 70 miles away from the sea high in the pennines but he used to turn out even in the middle of the night ,he would usually get there to ready skids for the hard task of recovering the mersey class boat back up the beach.

30mins walk or in a car?
If you want to learn stuff then that would be the way to go. Otherwise just wait till your sixteen.

Well it's good you've got a keen interest. Stick with it and learn as much as you can from reading, talking with crew etc. That way when you can join you'll hit the floor running as far as training goes. Best of luck with it

rnli training with everyone

hi im a coxswain/instructer with an inshore rescue unit and rib owner down in the south west coast of ireland and we run info days here for local boat owners/fishermen and pleasure, jet skis, we cover radio opperation, safety at sea, boat handling, life jackets, proceadures for rescue calls etc. we try and work as closely as possible with all and find that we have built up a fantastic working relationship with all, makes us more accesable and has reduced our "stupid" call list by two thirds.we also have a massive response if and when we need extra personell/boats for the larger calls
