The fascinating history of Bembridge Lifeboat Station has been brought to life in a new book written by Martin Woodward. Read about our brave volunteers and their lifeboats, from the past to the present, and how they have battled the elements to bring people to safety.

This paperback chronicles Bembridge's lifeboating history from 1867 to the current day. Written by a former coxswain, if anyone knows about the peaks and troughs of lifeboating it is Martin. Be prepared to be saddened by some tragic events and then buoyed up by the indomitable spirit of our Bembridge lifesavers, their generous supporters, and their families.
