Watch Peterhead’s crew rescue a father and son stranded on the rocks
When a father and son realised that their boat’s engine had failed in force 6 winds and rough waves, they knew that they were in trouble. Powerless against the mercy of the sea, they could do nothing as their boat was driven onto the rocks and began to sink. Left with no other option, they leaped onto the rocks just as their boat disappeared under the water.

In a new feature, we give them their well – deserved moment in the sun. This month, meet Gerald. He has been fundraising since he was 5 and now leads tours of the RNLI College.

As you begin 2016 with some New Year’s resolutions, why not add running to that list?
