Good Morning, and welcome to the Freshwater Bay Weather Station on the Isle of Wight, which is a contributor to the Isle of Wight Weather Station Network. Our station is situated in the Lifeboat Station in Freshwater Bay. Here, you can find details of past and present weather conditions, forecasts, climate and trends to be found whilst living or holidaying on the Isle of Wight. We have weather data and details from Newport, Bleakdown, Brighstone, Freshwater Bay, Central Newport, Sandown and Ryde and Brighstone. With the exceptions of routine back up and maintenance to our data systems, isleofwightweather is on line 24 hours a day giving you the information you need when you need it. During extreme weather conditions, we update our data more frequently. As the Freshwater Bay Weather Station is remote from us, it may be subject to occasional outages. If this occurs, please visit our other live websites at Newport thunderstorm detection, Newport, Brighstone or Bleakdown . It will be put back on line as soon as possible.

About the Freshwater Independent Lifeboat

Freshwater Lifeboat is an independent organisation and is not connected to any other Lifeboat Institution. We are part of the Solent Sea-Rescue Organisation (SSRO) which co-ordinates the activities of nine similarly declared independent units which provide rescue services around the Solent and the Isle of Wight.

We have two boats on 24/7 standby for slipway launch. Spirit of West Wight is an 8.8m self-righting Barbarian Class Wheelhouse RIB with twin 225HP Yamaha outboards giving a top speed of nearly 50 Knots and a 10hour range and the Berry B is a 5m semi-inflatable inshore rescue boat with a 40hp Yamaha outboard giving a top speed of 25 knots.

Our patrol area runs from Saint Catherine's on the southern tip of the island to Hurst Point in the Solent and out a distance of about 30 miles into the English Channel. The cost to buy and equip a new lifeboat of the type we need to operate in all weather out to mid Channel is in around 200,000 so our fundraisers and friends in the community are kept very busy.

Freshwater Lifeboat receive a small grant from the SSRO which contributes to our operating expenses of over 30,000 per annum. However the majority of these costs and all of the capital costs of boats and shore facilities is provided by fundraising from within the local community and visitors to Freshwater Bay where the unit is based.

Freshwater Lifeboat launches on average 30 times each year at the request of the Coastguard to assist vessels in distress or persons in difficulty in the waters off the "Back of the Wight". Last Year they assisted over 200 people in difficulty at sea and around our shores. Their mission is to save lives every hour of the day and every day of the year.


On Exercise with the coastguard

A major source of funds is the Lifeboat Gift Shop, attached to the boathouse, and located in Freshwater Bay. This is operated entirely by volunteers and is a popular and busy spot during the summer months serving hot and cold drinks, gifts and ice-creams to visitors to the bay.

The unit holds several open days each year where the boats are on display to the public and various fund-raising events take place. Membership is available for an annual subscription of 2 or Lifetime membership for a minimum donation of 50. Donations are always gratefully received.

The Crew, Launching Party and Fundraisers are entirely voluntary and give their time freely to train, build and maintain facilities and to raise funds as well as the all important lifesaving. New members are always welcome and we offer training up to advanced power boat and yacht master standards in boat handling and navigation. Join them on a Wednesday evening or Sunday morning for regular training sessions.

For further details, or to make a donation please visit the Freshwater Independent Lifeboat Website.
