Bank Holiday Monday at 12pm 10 crew from Mumbles sat on their rowing machines and completed the task
The crew managed to complete the distance from Mumbles to Tenby and back.
The distance of approximately 100,000 metres was completed in just over 2 hours. There was a great carnival atmosphere and the crew even attended a call out an hour in. Three of the crew were called to the aid of a fishing boat in Three Cliffs and still managed to tow it back to The Mumbles and complete their turn on the rowing machines.
Second Coxswain Nigel Garner said 'We're very happy with the donations we've had so far as the total gets close to £900. All the money goes to the RNLI. Many people passing the station didn't realise the service is a charity and we're all volunteers'.
Through the month of May RNLI volunteer lifeboat crew across the country have been setting themselves huge sponsored challenges.
The May Day appeal is to raise money for the RNLI.
