Stories that come down through the centuries. A force that cannot be tamed.

The sea that surrounds us. The taker of land and lives. With us always.

A Victorian hero...

A young mum, juggling family, career and going off to sea…

A timeless responsibility. Passed on from one generation to the next.

Putting themselves between the sea and the lost.

And life goes on. New joys. New challenges.

But forever, facing the waves.
