Porthleven Lifeboat Day 2016

Porthleven lifeboat day held annually around August, the RNLI, Coastguard and Coastguard Helicopters all attend subject to call-outs. This year a Porthleven was the first appearance of the new S-92 Helicopter from Bristows based at Newquay airport. This year also in addition to the Penlee Lifeboat there were also two inshore ribs in attendance. The S-92 Helicopter announced his arrival with a loud siren over the harbour as he flew in. Then there was the spectacular lifeboat rescue demonstration with the helicopter, and on completion all three lifeboats entered the harbour for the crowds to see. A sunny day also, fantastic day all round.  A small selection of images here and remainder on my website at: Porthleven Lifeboat Day Images
