Cowes Lifeboat Station

Hugh Robotham

Deputy Launching Authority (DLA)Visits Team

Hugh helped found Cowes Inshore Lifeboat which became operational in 1988/89 after sailing for approximately 30 years as he wanted to give something back to the sailing community. By trade, Hugh was a building surveyor for the IW Council. He was a qualified Sailing and Powerboat Instructor and covered safety boat duties at Gurnard Sailing Club for many years. Hugh retired as a Deputy Launching Authority in June 2014, but is happy to remain involved on the visits team!
