A 23 year old general manager has become only the fourth woman ever to join Lyme Regis lifeboat crew.
Lyme Regis-born Georgia Robson has enrolled as a shore member of the volunteer crew, and is now attending regular training sessions at the lifeboat station on the Cobb.
Georgia, a former Woodroffe School pupil, aims eventually to become a sea-going crew member. She enjoys regular trips with her ex-Royal Marine father Jim, in his four metre RiB (rigid inflatable boat).
Georgia applied to join the lifeboat crew after meeting other members at last year’s Remembrance Day parade.
“I have always enjoyed the sea, and after talking to crew members it just seemed natural to apply to join them,” she said.
“I am thoroughly enjoying the camaraderie during training sessions.”
Georgia is general manager with Tukxi Ltd, an Axminster firm which imports and converts Tuk Tuk auto rickshaws.
Lifeboat operations manager Nick Marks, said: “Georgia follows Grace and Shona and now joins Nikky and we are delighted to welcome her aboard.”
