‘While using my GoPro camera to film the Sandown & Shanklin Independent Lifeboat crew from a marker buoy, my GoPro camera fell into the sea. Luckily I had fitted a ‘Waterbuoy’ floatation device which successfully inflated and allowed the GoPro to be rescued. Phew!! And it did capture some interesting footage.’ Brain Russell

Visitors and residents can get a seagull’s view of Ventnor and it’s unique cliff-side topography aboard the Ventnor-built Cheetah Marine Catamaran, Blue Safari. The trip goes out to St. Catherine’s Point, renowned as a wrecking coast and smugglers haunt, and pauses along the way to haul some lobster pots as Skipper Lucy Stevens explains the legal size regulations and allows a hands-on experience to trippers. Finally an exciting fast ride back to the Haven.
Filmed and produced by Louis Lawrence.
