  • Brighton Lifeboat station gives 24.7 search and rescue services between Newhaven and Shoreham on the Sussex coast.

    The crews that man the lifeboat station and the boats are varied with few coming from a sailing background originally. This crew launches on around 60 rescues every year and must be at sea within 8 minutes of the emergency call. Many times they are faster ensuring that they are successful at helping casualties.

    Most of the call outs for this station are within a 2 mile radius and the crew train twice a week in all weather conditions to keep up to date with rescue ops and procedures. It is a busy station due to the many beach visitors and the marina in the bay.

    They encourage visitors in particular those from schools or communities that have an interest to see how they operate and are funded.

    The first lifeboat at Brighton was in 1824. Early lifeboats were all weather but now the station houses an inshore lifeboat only.
