Borth RNLI Lifeboat Station
2021, May 30 - 2 SUPs.
At 3:30 in the afternoon Borth inshore lifeboat was tasked to a report of two teenagers on Stand Up Paddleboards in difficulty off Borth Beach. The two teenagers were being blown offshore and were drifting southwards with the outgoing tide. They had managed to get with 20 meters of the shore when the lifeboat arrived on scene. Two of the lifeboat crew entered the water to assist the two casualties to shore. They helped the over the difficult terrain in the sunken forest. The crew noted that the teenagers were cold and wet but had not ingested any water. They were both wearing wetsuits. The casualties were handed over to HM Coastguard Borth on the beach and the lifeboat returned to station.
2021, February 07 - Dog.
On Sunday 7th February, whilst on exercise, Borth lifeboat was tasked to investigate reports of a dog which had been chasing seagulls (and failed) but had followed them to about 200 yards offshore. By the time the lifeboat arrived on scene the, very tired dog, had made its own way to shore. The crew confirmed with the owners that this was the dog in question, and that no-one else had entered the water. As everyone was safe the crew returned to their exercise.

Being part of an RNLI volunteer lifeboat crew is a major commitment, where Borth RNLI lifeboat volunteer crew members may have to risk their lives to save people in peril. The commitment isn't only measured in the time spent involved in rescues; new equipment and boats mean that regular training programmes also account for much of their spare time.

Given that you are prepared to give that commitment the RNLI will provide world class training and support, and you will become part of a great team.
RNLI Volunteers are also required to help fundraising and organise events to support the work of our volunteer lifeboat crews. If you are able to help please email email@example.com.
Due to COVID-19 the Shop remains closed, as there is insufficient space to social distance, we will advise when we consider it safe to reopen.
The Borth RNLI Shop is run by volunteers and thus does not have set opening times but it is open most days during the summer months. If the Borth RNLI shop is not open when you visit, there is a notice in the window next to the shop telling when it will be open next.
The Borth RNLI shop carries a range of gift ideas, toys, clothing, products for the home, garden and much more.
As the RNLI shop is manned by volunteers 100% of profit goes directly towards our vital life saving work.
