Crew: Jason Delf
Jason although brought up in Great Yarmouth was born in Caister and from a young age the saying "Caister Men Never Turn Back" was instillled in him, whilst struggling to walk when he first got diagnosed with Perthes disease. As soon as he managed to move back to Caister he started to get involved in the Lifeboat. Jason works for his families business the Burlington Palm Hotel on Great Yarmouth Seafront.
Jason has attended several callouts during the past few years, the first being to look for a missing kayak, that was spotted from Gorleston cliffs, the crew put him ashore on the Scroby Sands to search the shoreline. On another occasion Jason was among the crew who went to the aid of the Dutch dredger Arco Dyke that had dredged up a World War II practice bomb (the second time that year) The lifeboat maintained a one mile exclusion zone around the vessel until bomb disposal experts had dealt with the bomb.
Prior to joining the crew Jason raised funds for the lifeboat by declaring it his named charity in his year as the Chairman of the Great Yarmouth Round Table and last year persuaded them to donate funds to purchase practice resuscitation and First Aid equipment, which has greatly assisted all members of the crew in gaining there RYA approved first aid certification.
Jason enjoys the team spirit of being a member of the Caister crew and looks forward to continuing his charity fund raising and lifesaving work.
