We are always looking for new volunteers. 





Solent Rescue is made up totally by volunteers from all walks of life and ages. We are always looking out for both shore and boat crew throughout the season. 


We are operational at weekends from Easter through to September, bank holidays and 7 days during the festival of Cowes week.

Our boat crew are trained in safety at sea, power boat handling, first aid and all activities required to keep a lifeboat operational and lookout manned, however, don't worry, prior knowledge of seamanship is not essential as excellent training is offered. From the day you join the crew, you will be able to help in the operation of the boat & shore operations.

We are always looking for volunteers to join us, either as one of our skilled boat crew, shore crew or why not join us as fundraiser...
