NCI WOOLTACK POINT VISIT THE RNLI

24th July 2019. NCI Wooltack Point watchkeepers paid a visit to their local lifeboat station.

The volunteer members of the National  Coastwatch Institution station at Wooltack Point had the opportunity to visit RNLI Angle on Milford Haven waterway; one of three lifeboat stations in their area of operation. It was a very enjoyable and interesting visit, where the NCI watchkeepers were shown around by the Coxswain and one of his volunteers. They were able to learn a lot about the role of the RNLI and share more about their land based role, just west of Angle on the Deer Park. Plans between the two organisations have already been made about conducting some shared exercises in the near future.
