What's happening at Largs this season?

Two days and two RNLI lifeboat lifts

07 March 2018

With the snow melted and temperatures rising, it is the time of year when lots of boats come ashore to quickly do their final jobs before the season.

And this is no different with the RNLI. Storm Emma and the 'Beast From The East' disrupted service last week in the marina, so we were left in the unusual position of lifting two different RNLI lifeboats over two days.

First it was the turn of the Troon Trent Class lifeboat. With the all-weather RNLB lifeboat manning the station in Troon, the boat was lifted, scrubbed, antifouled and relaunched before heading back south to Troon.

The following day, it was the turn of Campbeltown with their Severn Class Lifeboat. The Campbeltown lifeboat team are a regular visitors to Largs as they come ashore for their service every 6 months.
