The lifeboats


We make regular visits to Weston Super Mare on Sunday mornings, have breakfast in Stones Restaurant and have a stroll along the prom.

This particular Sunday was a very windy day and two inflatable lifeboats were training out in the bay.  When they’d finished they were brought ashore using tractors and trailers. The tractors went some way into the sea and I captured the sequence of images as they retrieved the boats.

It transpires that they do at-sea training every Wednesday afternoon and Sunday. Well worth looking out for, especially if it’s very choppy !

All images taken on Nikon D750, 24-120 Nikkor lens.
