Crew member Jake Martin has passed out as deputy second coxswain.

This follows nearly 12 months of training, hard work, and many hours at sea. He is now fully qualified in his new role.

“A huge congratulations to Jake from everyone at the St Ives Lifeboat Station and good luck for the future with us,” said an RNLI spokesperson.
