    The Torbay lifeboat (RNLB Alec and Christina Dykes) leaving Brixham harbour in answer to a distress call.

    Having slipped her moorings she approaches the harbour entrance

    Rounding the breakwater

    Beginning to feel the force of the open sea

    Heading into a force 6 SE wind

    Disappearing in a welter of spray

    Away into the gloom to find the casualty (a forty foot motor cruiser some 8 miles away that she eventually towed in Torbay harbour)

    Panasonic GH2 with Zuiko 50-200mm, f/2.8-3.5

    I think these images could be improved with a little contrast.
