Welcome to Filey Lifeboat Station, on this site is an insight and hopefully informative look at an RNLI Lifeboat Station. Filey is ideally positioned to launch and assist the people who get into difficulty off the Yorkshire coast. Filey is situated between the scenic but treacherous Flamborough Head to the South and Filey Brigg to the North. Even on a fine day these two places can cause problems to the many sailors, fishermen and visitors who use and pass through the area. You will see on the site the accounts of the services we perform in and around the bay and often further afield.
The RNLI is a charity and funded solely by donations, legacies and fundraising by its Ladies Guilds and associated groups. It needs around £130 million a year to run the service it provides around our coastline. The crew at Filey are all volunteers with exception of the Coxswain/Mechanic. All lifeboat crews are highly trained by the RNLI in First Aid, Navigation and all aspects of Marine Search and Rescue, as you will see in the reports that are contained in this site. RNLI lifeboat crews are always willing to drop everything at all times of day or night in any weather to assist people in difficulty. On land or sea
