It was a busy day for Eastbourne RNLI today. This morning our All Weather Lifeboat Diamond Jubilee was lifted out the water for her routine hull inspection, as expected she passed with flying colours. Once she was safely back in the water it was then time to go to The Inshore Lifeboat station and take delivery of a relief D Class Lifeboat that will be on station while our D Class Lifeboat goes away for her three yearly refit. All equipment was quickly swapped over and made ready for service. Thank you to volunteer crew Alan Simister, Alex Emberley ,Craig Robinson and Jim Edwards for giving up time today to help Coxswain Mark Sawyer. ...
