We're all grateful to the wonderful men and women of the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) for their dedication and service in saving lives at sea. Fortunately few of our members have ever needed to call on them in anger, but with Mersea and Clacton inshore lifeboats and Walton and Harwich offshore lifeboats all within a very short run of our sailing waters its wonderful to know they are there when we need them.
