Our new Atlantic 85 lifeboat Renee Sherman arrived on Monday 16th May. Following a week of intensive training for all our volunteer crew, she officially became Littlehampton lifeboat.
At 0:40am on Friday 27th May Renee launched following a call from West Sussex Police to the coastguard. The lifeboat headed out in the dark upriver towards the reported incident on the A259 river bridge.
Once on scene it was reported that the police had dealt with the incident. Renee Sherman stood down and returned to station at 1:00am, where she was refuelled and made ready for service.
