Post-RNLI working life

In 1968 Lucy Lavers retired from the RNLI, and called L'Esperance, became a pilot boat in the Channel Island port of St. Helier, Jersey. Subsequently she was a private fishing boat and in 1986 she was bought by the Dive and Ski Club of St. Helier. During the tourist season, she provided around four hundred trainees with practical experience on a training course from the bays of St. Aubin, St. Brelade and Portelet as well as the Island of Sark.
