Welcome aboard Lucy. Coxswain of Oban Lifeboat John Hill says: ‘We are delighted to welcome Lucy into the crew. She is already a valuable and dedicated member of the team". Lucy hyamLucy, who started volunteering with the RNLI at Cromer lifeboat station, is currently studying at the Scottish Association for Marine Sciences for a degree in Marine Science. She says: ‘The training that I gained through the RNLI’s own college means that the transition from one lifeboat to another has been very straightforward’. Oban is one of the busiest lifeboat stations in Scotland and covers a large sea area. It also has a high number of ‘medevacs’ – medical evacuations – from islands, usually Mull which is around half an hour These medevacs can bring surprises. Four babies have been born onboard Mora Edith Macdonald.
Tighabruaich Lifeboat Station launched its new inshore boat with an all female crew. Campeltown, Tobermory and Islay all have female crew members. It’s about teamwork. All RNLI crews are volunteers, accepting as routine that this involves being ready to put themselves in harm’s way to save those in danger on the sea, while in pursuit of business or leisure.
