Previously I have mentioned the rough geographical limits to our patch. Dave has produced this map which very clearly shows not the theory but the practise.........where did we end up going last year. The furthest West we got was just past Kimmeridge, we went about 1/2 way to the Isle of Wight in the East, up to Poole harbour entrance in the North and then about 30 miles South. I make that an area of somewhere in the region of 700 square nautical miles! Not bad hey? This year is shaping up to be very similar. We've had nothing mid channel yet but it'll happen I'm sure.

As much as I'd like to take credit for it, that map was actually produced by the RNLI's Service Information Dept in Poole. I do one similar for the station website, its updated through the year rather than being produced when all the previous year's data is available. All our shouts are fed into the RNLI's database and these maps are one product of that data. They are used to check lifeboat coverage around the coast amongst other things. DT
