We have sailed the Bristol Channel since 1958, always feeling safe knowing that Swansea coast guard was looking after us like a mother hen, in the potentially dangerous Bristol Channel, and usually checking our progress, e.t.a. etc. If Southampton or any other station receives a call for help, how can they safely direct rescue when they are not familiar with the local bays and hazards Swansea coast guard has always been caring, professional, and giving advise to novices, , On a busy summer's day will Southampton,or Milford be able to cope with the many extra calls from such an increased area of sea ? ---------------------------------------------------- Thanks Ken for your comments, please have a look at our Links Page to go direct to the "Save Swansea Coastguard" website.

What shocking news this week with the announced closure of the Mumbles Coastguard station, how naive and short sighted of this current government, we intend to launch a campaign and public protest to get this decision reversed and hope that all staff, visitors and the general public as a whole will sign the petition in the future. You guys do a sterling job! Mike Dubens ----------------------------------------------- Thanks Mike, please see the "Save Swansea Coastguard" page for further details & links. Our Website has been updated accordingly with links to the new Save Swansea Coastguard group and website. Keep up the good work and thank you for your help in supporting our Colleagues.

Disgusted that the government are getting rid of Swansea Coastguard station/services by 2015. I have literally just walked home from my local shops in Mumbles @ 9.40pm (approx) and the Coastguard vehicle has passed heading out of Mumbles with flashing blue sirens...How sick are the government these days,; They seem to care more about helping other countries out financially than putting our lives first. x --------------------------------------------------- Thanks Nicky, please see the "Save Swansea Coastguard" page for further details & links. The Website has been updated accordingly. The Mumbles Rescue Vehicle was on its way to a person who had fallen and sustained leg injuries. Details are on the Callouts pages.

Hi,In August I will be visiting my son who works in Haverfordwest then I will travel down to Stay in Swansea for 5 days or so. In February 2009 I was on a cruise aboard The DISCOVERY- (South America to Antarctica etc etc) and I met an ex merchant navy mate by the name of "MIKE" who used to be a coastguard down there in Mumbles. I dont have his telephone number, e-mail or home address. I thought of giving him a ring just to catch up. Can you help? I sail out of Holyhead and am friendly with the lifeboat cox and 2nd cox. I may visit the Yacht Club in Swansea and maybe have a sail! My home phone number is xxxxx xxxxxx and mobile:- xxxxx xxxxxx. I would appreciate a call or e-mail if you can help me. Thanks a lot.
