The RNLI is a charity which relies on donations and provides lifesaving around the United Kingdom and Ireland. Most of the people are all volunteers who, when needed, rush to the boats and dash out into the unknown.
Now, I couldn't not leave without finding a couple of videos of the bigger boats being launched. Although both are actually exercise launches.
The new Tamar on Trial launch
Douglas RNLI Lifeboat Launch
not bad eh?
