Guernsey-based superyacht service provider Voyonic Crewing Ltd has announced it will be sponsoring the fuel used by the new inshore lifeboat service, which is running as part of a two-year trial.
The inshore lifeboat is designed for rapid response and to access shallower waters and has proved very useful since its launch in July.
Neil Carrington, chief executive of Voyonic, said, “As a marine employment company and as an ex-professional seafarer myself we have a natural affinity with the sea so it is great to be working with a charity that helps to keep people safe at sea.”
Celia Allen, Guernsey Lifeboat Guild chairman, added, “We are absolutely delighted that Voyonic has offered to help in such a practical way by sponsoring fuel for our new ILB. The fact that the sponsorship is for two years is very generous and thoughtful.
“The Guernsey Lifeboat Guild is very grateful for this great addition to the fundraising for the work on the Guernsey lifeboats.”
