Dunbar lifeboat crew member, Laura, is undertaking a passage to RNLI HQ in Poole with Eyemouth Lifeboat‘s Trent class lifeboat, 14-11 Barclaycard Crusader, which is joining the RNLI’s relief fleet. We’ll miss Laura while she’s away but hope she has a safe passage and enjoys all the sights to see along the way.

A Shannon class all-weather lifeboat replaces the current Trent class boat and is described as the "most agile and manoeuvrable" vessel in the RNLI's fleet. The Shannon can operate close to rocks and other vessels because she is propelled by waterjets instead of traditional propellers, making her well suited to the Borders coastline.
