With RNLI Lifeguards returning to multiple beaches this weekend, including 2 beaches in Southsea, we would like to remind the public that Portsmouth and Southsea Voluntary Lifeguards will not be patrolling this weekend amid the COVID-19 outbreak, although plans are underway to resume our patrols on Southsea beach.

Portsmouth Lifeguards Member of 50 years and Senior Coxswain Roly Warmington has been named in the Queen's New Year's Honours List for his Voluntary services of 50 years to Portsmouth and Southsea Voluntary Lifeguards and 40 years to Portsmouth Coastguard Rescue Team.
Whilst conducting their regular Tuesday night training session, the Portsmouth and Southsea Voluntary Lifeguards were tasked twice by Solent Coastguard to assist a broken down yacht and to search for a swimmer off of Southsea Castle.
Being less than 2 months old and already responding to her first incident, our brand new lifeboat was certainly put through her paces today! While carrying out engine trials in the local area, the new Portsea Rescue 1 was tasked by Solent Coastguard to respond to a 999 call to the reports that there were persons in the water off a sandbar near the Inn on the beach pub, Hayling Island.
