By malcf8      
This image was a chance encounter when trainee lifeguards were having a training day in bad weather and rough seas , The scene is set on Sandsend Beach, North Yorkshire Coast.

Sandsend is a small fishing village, near to Whitby in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire, England. It forms part of the civil parish of Lythe. It is the birthplace of fishing magnate George Pyman. Originally two villages, Sandsend and East Row, the united Sandsend has a pub and restaurant. A large part of the western side of the village, in The Valley, is still owned by Mulgrave Estate. The Valley is one of the most expensive areas to buy property on the Yorkshire Coast.
History
Sandsend and the neighbouring village of East Row began as separate villages, but were joined when extra cottages were built for workers in the alum industry. Sandsend was also buoyed by tourism from the Whitby, Redcar and Middlesbrough Union Railway, which ran through the village from 1855 to 1958 The local station was Sandsend railway station, which opened in 1883 and was closed in 1958.
