Solent Independant Lifeboat Blast - 10th July

Some advance notice of a rib event that is shaping up for the 10th July - designed to be a social cruise in company for the boats involved and raise some awareness for the independent units and lifeguard clubs throughout the cruising area.

We’re looking to be leaving Poole at 1300, with Poole Lifeguards leading the flotilla out (hopefully), stop and wave to Bournemouth lifeguards, Branksome and Southbourne teams as we pass each home base.

Head over towards Hurst castle and wave at Solent Rescue ( at Leap), round to Calshot to see Stanswood lifeguard team, Hamble next for a cup of tea stop (hopefully) followed by a run down to Gafirs to have a wave then across Portsea Rescue before turning.

We'll cross over to Ryde, down to the needles to meet Freshwater before heading to for home.

It's a day out in company, waving, horn honking and saying hello to those that help others.

More details to come as it's only just starting to take shape.
