Launch Information - 15/08/2018


Cromer RNLI was asked to launch its inshore lifeboat at 16.41pm. A request had come in from the Coastguard, to reports of an inflatable in difficulties off Overstrand.
Once the crew had been paged, the ‘George and Muriel’, Cromer’s D class inshore lifeboat was launched. Weather conditions were fine with the breeze from the West South West running at 2 – 3 knots, visibility was good and the sea state was flat.

The crew were soon on scene just along the beach near to Overstrand, it was then established that the persons on board were fine and they were escorted to shore and
given a few words of advice.

By 17:30pm the inshore lifeboat had returned to its station, was washed down refuelled and made ready for its next launch.

In Cromer there are two boathouses, one for the All-Weather Lifeboat "Lester" on the pier and the other for the Inshore Lifeboat on the east promenade. This boathouse was originally built in 1902 for the then rowing and sailing lifeboat Louisa Heartwell. Also on the east promenade you'll find the Henry Blogg Lifeboat Museum. The whole town is proud of the man referred to as 'the greatest of the lifeboatmen', who gained national fame in the first half of the 20th century when navigation around the Norfolk coastline was particularly hazardous in easterly gales.
