Cowes Lifeboat Station

Martin Calmon


Martin joined the crew in July 2015 as shore crew after finding out through his gym friends who were on the crew. He had an attraction as a child to rescuers, and as a sailor, this moved into lifeboats. When he became an adult, he considered joining but never lived near enough to a station. After nearly four years of living locally, Martin decided to join the crew. Martin’s hobbies are mainly sailing (racing), but include all watersports. By day, he is a Composite Design Engineer, designing boat structures, wind and tidal turbine blades and any other composite structures.
