I'm on the RNLI Pentax Photo of the year 2008

You can just see me on the starboard quarter! (of the lifeboat that is)




New Quay Crew Member Hanna Nuuttila is the RNLI Pentax photographer of the year 2008, it has been announced at the London International Boat Show.

Hanna's winning image shows Pwllheli's Mersey class all-weather lifeboat coming to the aid of the sailing yacht Galasma in force 9 severe gales, high waves and poor visibility.

Now in its third year, the competition was developed to document the RNLI's rescue work. Entries were submitted by crew members and lifeguards from around the UK and RoI.

A new film-making category was added to the 2008 competition, as part of the RNLI's initiative to equip lifeboats with cameras that capture real-time film footage of rescues and training exercises. Barry Perrins, a crew member at Plymouth lifeboat station, won the top prize for his short film about why he gives up his time to volunteer.

The winning photo is on display at the RNLI's boat show stand until Sunday 18 January, along with the winners of the competition's sub-categories. The film is also being shown.

Hanna says: ‘I'm totally surprised to win, because my fellow crew mates in New Quay entered the image on my behalf! It's an honour to be recognised for the photo, but this award is really to be shared with all the crew who were out on the shout that day in very difficult conditions.'

Nah mate you must be getting your Port and Starboard mixed up - the Starboard quarter is higher, you would be on the lower side

Got to admit,

Theres a certain thrill to being out in heavy seas, with good crew and the right equipment beneath you, whether going to a shout or not.

But still, you don't realise exactly how rough it is until some bright spark brings along a camera.

As soon as they hit the beach they will drop a wire strop which is attached to the keel, the tractor will then attach and winch up the beach.

If you scroll down to near the bottom of this page you will see http://www.pwllhelilifeboat.co.uk/20653.html
