Welcome to Looe RNLI Photo Competition.

The competition has been devised to raise funds for our replacement D Class lifeboat Ollie Naismith II. A D class inshore lifeboat has served Looe since 1992, but next year, the current D Class Ollie Naismith will have reached the end of its operational life and needs to be replaced. The appeal aims to raise £78,000, the total amount needed to build the lifeboat, deliver it to station, together with all the relevant kit and provide the necessary ongoing crew training.
