Out on a Shout

It is often difficult to show in pictures the whole of a typical RNLI callout or "shout" as the call outs are known. This gallery shows the culmination of a number of rescues where the Stromness RNLI lifeboat has towed casualties back to the safety of Stromness Harbour. The latter set of shots show the Stromness RNLI lifeboat carrying out a search and rescue in Hoy Sound during a Force 11 gale on 8th November 2007. They give an insight into the dedication and bravery of the RNLI volunteer crews at Stromness and around the country who put their lives on the line going to the aid of others in peril on the sea.
