About the Organisation
Calshot Lifeboat Station is located on Calshot Spit on the southern bank of the open end of Southampton Water. It is within the area of Calshot Activities Centre, close to the village of Calshot in Hampshire on the south coast of England.
The station is owned and operated by the RNLI and currently operates two inshore lifeboats. They are an Atlantic 85 called Max Walls (B-860) and a D-class (IB1) called RNLB Willett (D-748).
In the 1960’s after the RAF had left Calshot, Hampshire County Council opened an Education Sea and Land based Activities Centre. The centre was constantly being asked by HM coastguard to rescue people off shore. The warden at the centre was Col. Philip Keymer, who contacted the RNLI, and as a direct result, and after a years evaluation, Calshot became a lifeboat station in 1970. Col. Keymer became the first Honorary Secretary of the station.Contacts
