Operations.Our boat, Spirit of the Dart, D702 has returned to station from a refit at the Inshore Lifeboat Centre at Cowes. We are glad to see her back and thank D710 from the relief fleet for standing in.The Spring weather has been dry and sunny with a predominately easterly airstream which has produced lower than average temperatures. This may explain a quiet period for our Lifeboat crew. The Station however has had a busy month of change.We have had three major crew changes with Rachel Cole, Darren Kershaw- Hopley and Steve Wallis having to stand down.

A concerned member of the public contacted the Coastguard to report a dinghy, with four occupants, who appeared to be in need of assistance just seaward of Kingswear Castle.At 15:03 Falmouth Coastguard tasked the lifeboat to investigate.On arrival at the scene the lifeboat crew found the crew of the dinghy safe, well equipped and the dinghy in good working order.Although this incident turned out to be an unintentional false alarm we urge the public to be vigilant and report any concerns they may have to the Coastguard.Lifeboat Crew :- Kevin Murphy, helsman.
