Hot weather continues for many over the next few days with temperatures in the high 20s or low 30s. The average sea temperature around our shores is 12C but cold water shock can set in at anything below 15C. If you find yourself in cold water unexpectedly, know what to do. Float to Live.

We can’t save lives without generous commitment. So we’re very proud that these volunteers at three different lifeboat stations have been recognised with MBE awards in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. They have over a century of service – on the lifeboats and at their stations – between them! Get the full story: [ Rnli.info Link ]

What a busy weekend that was for our lifesavers around Ireland and the UK! The hot weather brought lots of people to the water, and not all of them had the fun day out they were hoping for. Among those who needed our volunteers’ help were the kayakers in this short video, who were heard shouting for help near Waterfoot in County Antrim. They were in the chilly water clinging to their upturned...

Here's the Portsmouth volunteer inshore crew heading to the aid of sailors last weekend. The sailors' dinghy capsized in a gust of wind and they were left clinging to the upturned craft. Well done to all at Portsmouth Lifeboat Station!

As our beaches get busier, every second counts. Our lifeguards need to be super fit - fit enough to swim 200m in under 3½ minutes and run 200m in less than 40 seconds. It costs £718 a year to train a lifeguard like Chris to save lives on the beach and in the water. Please help us if you can. [ Rnli.info Link ]

A very happy 100th birthday to our kind supporter Barry High, who funded the Ilfracombe RNLI Shannon class lifeboat. Barry named her 'The Barry and Peggy High Foundation' in tribute to his late wife. A keen sailor, Barry said he funded the lifeboat because "it was always comforting to know that, if I had any trouble, the RNLI was never more than a phone call or push button away… I do not think...

When a dog was let off its lead next to the Thames yesterday, it decided to jump straight into the river – so a passer-by went to the rescue. But who would rescue the rescuer? Here’s what happened next, through the eyes of TowerRNLI .

If your dog or anyone else’s gets into trouble, we don’t recommend going in after it – call 999 or 112 and ask for the Coastguard. Get more dog walking safety...

On this day in 1940, two lifeboat crews launched to help save soldiers trapped at Dunkirk, as part of Operation Dynamo. They showed the kind of voluntary spirit and courage that lives on today - through RNLI Margate lifeboat , RNLI Ramsgate Lifeboat and the many others who help us to save lives. To them, and all our supporters: thank you.
