Cowes RNLI Lifeboat Station

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update

Monday 16th March 2020

It is with regret that we have taken the decision to close Cowes Lifeboat Station to members of the public until further notice – this is to ensure we can continue to respond to incidents in a safe manner.

This does mean that all visits to the station have been cancelled and we will not be accepting visit requests for the time being.

We have also made the decision to suspend all activity at the station, with the exception of responding to emergency callouts, therefore all our crew nights, events and exercises are cancelled for at least the next 14 days.

We have been issued guidance by RNLI headquarters and will be following new procedures closely to protect our casualties, crew and their families.

If you have any questions, queries or concerns, please email us:

We thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.

The Cowes Crew.
