Crew member on GBR3L Me Julie

The crew of Kabestan Sailing Yacht Club yacht 'Me Julie' are raising money

and awareness of Hamble independent Lifeboats need for a new boathouse.

The independent station is not part the RNLI nor supported by them.

However the crew must train exactly the same way. They must also raise

funds themselves. Did you know that 26% of the countries lifeboats are

completely independent?

The intention of our Russian crew is to raise awareness of this as well as

try to raise some much needed cash for a new boathouse. The current

station is just big enough for the boat, let alone crew. They have no

toilet or shower facilities or changing facilities. Often they change

outside in all weather. Please give generously when you see our guys in

Plymouth.
