The Islay Lifeboat and crew usually go out to sea once a week for a training exercise. Being one of the lucky persons who was invited to join such a training I can tell it's a fabulous experience to see the Islay Lifeboat and Crew in action. It's probably even more spectacular when they are training with a Helicopter. In the video below you can see the Islay Lifeboat and Crew in action when they are doing a training exercise in the Sound of Islay together with a Sea King helicopter from HMS Gannet. Enjoy!
