‘The Lifeboat’ by Samuel Age 8 Years

One sunny morning in Falmouth harbour the lifeboat men set off to patrol the area because the tall ships were coming.

An hour later a boat launched off and went to Land’s End. It was very rough with spray going everywhere. Suddenly the boat capsized with a splash!
“Help!” shouted a crew member.

Meanwhile on the lifeboat the satnav picked up the signal and they zoomed off. Fifteen minutes later the lifeboat arrived where the boat had capsized. All the men pulled the crew out of the water. Most of them were wet so the lifeboat men dried them off. When they were dry they set off.

Twenty minutes later they had arrived back at the harbour. It looked very full because the tall ships had arrived. Then the lifeboat moored up alongside the pier and dropped the sailors off. After that they patrolled the harbour again.
