Into a Raging Sea by Tony Weaver & Andrew Ingram

The waters off South Africa’s coastline are regarded as some of the most dangerous on earth. Sudden changes in weather, rip currents and freak waves all play their part in putting humans in peril, which sometimes ends in tragedy. No matter the danger, however, the brave volunteers of the NSRI are always willing to risk their lives to save others. Setting out, often in ‘dirty weather’ and in dark and icy conditions, they do their utmost to bring the victims back safe.

To commemorate 50 years of Sea Rescue (1967-2017) we have published a collection of short stories written by Tony Weaver, Andrew Ingram and others.  Some of these stories will make you laugh, some will have you on the edge of your seat – others may be quite difficult to read.

Our book has been kindly published by JONATHAN BALL PUBLISHERS, a division of Media24 (Pty) Ltd at no charge to Sea Rescue.  Into a Raging Sea will be available at R240 from all good book stores and online from December 2016.

Sea Rescue has a small stock which can be reserved – to order your pre-release, follow this link to our website.  Please note that any postage or courier arrangements would need to be discussed upfront with Stephanie or Natasha 021 434 4011 or

    I am eager to read this book. My heart goes out to those that lost their lives and to the brave crews that risked their own – of which my family was a part. Thank you for sharing your stories with us!
