Teams from HM Coastguard Littlehampton and Littlehampton RNLI were in action on the water, demonstrating a sea rescue.

HM Coastguard Littlehampton said: “The team were at Felpham Sailing Club as part of their sea week. Plenty of interested people came and saw us about the work we do and the equipment we use.

“We also put on a rescue display with Littlehampton RNLI Lifeboat Station demonstrating how we work together to deal with an incident.”
