In case you see an emergency on the coast or at sea and you don't have a VHF radio, ring 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
Thank you for your continued support.
Solent Rescue is an independent Lifeboat organisation based at Lepe Country Park in Exbury, Hampshire.
The rescue organisation was established in 1971, initially as a beach rescue unit but has since developed into a rescue unit that has inshore rescue capabilities. As part of a wider framework of Independent and RNLI operated lifeboats on the South Coast, Solent Rescue helps to monitor the waters of the Western Solent, as well as providing land-based support to Lepe Country Park.
Solent Rescue is operational at weekends from Easter until September, bank holidays and Daytime coverage during the 7 days of the Festival of Cowes week, while crew training takes place all year round.
We are currently classed as an additional unit to the coastguard whilst we are working through getting both our boats up to code, members of the public will not notice any difference in the level of service we can provide
