'There's water in the engine,' he said. 'The engine has stopped.'



This changed everything...




Surviving the Storms brings together incredible first-hand accounts of rescue missions carried out by RNLI volunteer crew, as well as recollections from the survivors themselves.


In this collection of heart-wrenching and life-affirming missions, we hear blow-by-blow accounts of some of the most dramatic rescues from the last 20 years. We see through the eyes of the crew as they must make life-or-death decisions; face fierce conditions; and often put their own safety at risk. However, we also see the optimism, passion and courage that is crucial to a successful rescue, and experience the genuine joy felt by the volunteer crews to be a part of something so important.


Each extraordinary story is one of bravery, jeopardy and an unrelenting human compassion to battle the forces of nature and to save every life. Volunteers are the bloodline of the RNLI - men, women, husbands, wives, fathers, mothers - all risking their safety to protect perfect strangers. Ordinary people doing the truly extraordinary.
