Sun 11 Aug

RNLI Open Day

Time: 10:00am - 3:00pm

In celebration of the summer holidays, Royal William Yard is hosting an array of FREE family activities, every Saturday and Sunday throughout August.

On Sunday 11th August from 10am-3pm, set sail for Royal William Yard Marina to join the crew from Plymouth Lifeboat Station and other amazing RNLI volunteers for a day of demonstrations, activity and awareness.

Surrounded by water on three sides, Plymouth's Royal William Yard is the perfect setting to celebrate those who save lives at sea.

The historic waterfront destination is hosting a day of celebrations with the RNLI on Sunday 11th August (10am - 3pm).

From daring demonstrations of sea rescues to fun-filled family activities and free children's crafts, the event will provide plenty of entertainment for all.
Two RNLI lifeboats, including a Severn class lifeboat – which is the largest in the fleet – will be moored in Royal William Yard Marina, which will be the backdrop for two live sea
rescue simulations.

As well as all the action on the water, the Water Safety Team, Plymouth RNLI Fundraisers, Plymouth RNLI Shop Team and RNLI Face to Face Team will provide information and entertainment back on dry land. Special guest, RNLI mascot Stormy Stan, will also be in attendance for the day!
