Pagham’s sea rescue event

A RESCUE at sea is set to take place off Pagham this month.

Two RNLI lifeboats, the air and sea rescue helicopter and a coastguard patrol will combine for the display.

It will take place at 6pm on July 17 off Pagham Yacht Club on West Front Road subject to weather and call-outs.

Proceeds from the display will go to the RNLI’s appeal for a new lifeboat and boathouse in Selsey.

Its existing Tyne all-weather lifeboat as well as the Atlantic 75 boat from Littlehampton will combine for the event with the search and rescue Bell-Augusta helicopter.

The yacht club will be open to non-members.
