In the past, she has raised thousands of pounds for charities, by sailing around the Isle of Wight, and across the English Channel.

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is the charity that saves lives at sea. This site is our way of thanking, informing and updating all the supporters whose generosity makes our work possible.
Cowes Lifeboat is one of the dedicated Search and Rescue resources for The Solent, that covers the area between Yarmouth and Ryde; these are approximate bounds, dependent on tidal conditions and other SAR resources, Cowes Lifeboat has been deployed outside these bounds but its work is largely carried out well within them.
We also take part in exercises. If you would like to see the lifeboat launch on exercise, the Sheena Louise can usually be seen coming down the slipway at about 1930 on a Thursday Evening.
