Mark joined the station shortly after it became part of the RNLI in July 2008. After 30 years in HM Customs and 25 years stationed around the Solent, Mark has a very detailed knowledge of the waters between Selsey Bill and Weymouth. He was a Customs Patrol Launch Commander and an instructor teaching Powerboating and local launch crews and also coordinated national advanced rib training. He is deeply involved in sailing in Cowes and particularly at Gurnard where he is Membership Secretary and recently retired as Vice Commodore. Mark also serves on the Lifeboat Visits Team.
