An early lifeboat

The Sumner Lifeboat Institution was founded in 1898 at Sumner Beach, near Christchurch, to carry out sea rescues. Volunteer members, wearing lifejackets, stand beside their first lifeboat, Rescue. Sumner Lifeboat was a founding member of the New Zealand Coastguard Federation in 1976, and is still in existence today.
