We live on an island, near Scotland - all part of the UK for now anyway. And we have a couple of lifeboat stations here - for which i am most grateful. It used to be just the Stornoway lifeboat then the Leverburgh one got going and 'shouts' for the Stornoway one halved apparently. So last weekend when we were in town having luncheon with William and Gemma, it was a surprise to catch the lifeboat boys rushing around to get out on a sunny but windy day.

One crew was a tad late - too busy eating Guga perhaps and missed the boat. Literally.

The crew of this French Round Britain Race yacht sorting their sails after the gales got more than they bargained for as the huge engines of the lifeboat started up!
