Inshore Rescue Boat (IRB)

 

This section aims to provide information for crew, drivers and anyone interested in Rescue boats.
The main function of the IRB is the patrolling of beaches within and beyond the 'surf zone', providing safety cover at lifesaving competitions and local swimming events.

In 2018, IWS Clare purchased 2 new Zodiac MilPro boats (pictured above).
The IRB is designed to be launched and landed off either a slipway or the beach.
