    Hi, I’m looking for a change in career direction (currently a self employed graphic designer) and have been trying to get to the bottom of what is required to become a Coastguard winchman. Could somebody please advise me what are the qualification/requirements for such a position? Many thanks. PAUL WILSON

    Hi Paul
    I assume you are seeking information on being the ‘winchman’ as part of the helicopter crew? The helicopter crew normally have an extensive military search & rescue background. The UK Coastguard helicopter search & rescue is provided by a company called CHC. Their website is They should be able to provide you with the information you need.

  3. hello,

    I run walking tours on the Seatone-Lyme Undercliff. I have a good working knowledge of First Aid and I would like to volunteer my services, should they be required, for any ‘search&rescue’ work on the Undercliff. Any idea what is the correct way to volunteer for this kind of thing?

    I am contacting you from PETA, (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)

    We just heard about the rescue of a Labrador on Saturday afternoon by the West Bay Coastguard Rescue team at Golden Cap.

    PETA presents ‘Heroes to Animal Awards’ for citizens who have shown compassion towards animals and we’d very much like to present you with the reward.

    Would you please be so kind as to provide me with your postal address so we can send the reward to you.

    We would also love to let the local press in your area know that you’ve received our reward. I hope this is ok with you?

    Hi Kathryn
    Thank you for getting in touch and expressing your comments which are appreciated by the teams. Your message has been sent on to our colleagues at West Bay who should be in touch shortly. The West Bay Coastguard team dealt with this rescue at Golden Cap as the Lyme Regis Coastguard team were rescuing a 10 year old boy who had become stuck in quicksand.
