The fascinating history of Salcombe and Hope Cove Lifeboat Stations has been brought to life in a new 162-page book written by Salcombe Lifeboat Museum Curator, Roger Barrett and published by the RNLI in its Station History series. Timed to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the RNLI’s presence in Salcombe, the book tells the story of the brave volunteers and their lifeboats which, since 1869, have launched on service over 1600 times and battled against the elements to save nearly 500 lives and bring a further 1350 people to safety.

The new book it is to be formally launched at a special event in Cliff House, Salcombe at 5pm on Wednesday March 27th with the Broadcaster and Marine Biologist Monty Halls lending his support.  The event, which is free and open to all, will include a short presentation, with slides and selected readings, by the author, followed by book signings.

‘Salcombe and Hope Cove Lifeboat Stations – Celebrating 150 years’ is also available from the Lifeboat shop (weekends only until April 1st), Helly Hansen, Fortescue Inn, Salcombe DIY, Luscombe Maye, Will Bees Bespoke, Salcombe Yacht Club and Salcombe Garage and, in Kingsbridge, at the Harbour Bookshop. Price £8.95. Or it can be ordered online by emailing salcombebooks@rnli.org.uk. Over 160 illustrations. All profits will help the RNLI to save lives at sea.
