Delivery of the rib

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for.  The new RIB is finally on her way to Jersey!

Arriving just in time for the summer holidays, when our beaches will be at their busiest and water-based activities will be increasing in popularity.  This new addition will be the fastest inshore rescue vessel in the Channel Islands, and the most modern rescue RIB in the British Isles!

Berthon put the RIB through rigorous sea trials this Monday to make sure that she’s ready for even the toughest of challenges here in Jersey.  She sailed through without a hitch, and is ready to make her way to her new home.  She’ll be leaving Berthon this Saturday morning (3rd July) and arriving here in St Helier at approx 12pm.  Anyone wishing to come and see her arrival are welcome, however please be mindful of social distancing.  Some restrictions may have to apply.

We couldn’t have done this without the love and support of our local community, and for that we will be eternally grateful.  Everyone is welcome to come and see her – Committee Members, General Members, Supporters, and those making occasional donations.
