Yesterday a group of ex Station 1 crew got together for a reunion – many of them have not seen each other for over 30 years.

This year Sea Rescue celebrates our 50th anniversary and we would love to reconnect with all our old friends and colleagues and supporters.  We have a series of Open Days planned around the country and our AGM on 12 June.  Please join us…..  or if you live overseas then feel free to send in a photo and memory for us to enjoy.

    All the Old Dogs! (Says me as one of them) I would have given one of my artificial hips to have listened to the stories! Well done all of you, this confirms my belief we are a family that endures. Bryan Jones, you still owe me for a bet we took in the middle of Table Bay one stormy evening. Regards and hope to see you all soon.

    Very interesting to see this reunion photo. I was part of Station 1 crew in (about) 1975 – 1977 …. down the far end of the tanker basin at the time. I recall during the time of one of the “round the world” yacht races that Pete Bestbier and I launched old “Hubert Davis” with just the 2 of us to help a yacht in distress near Robben Island. I know I have pictures somewhere .. I will post when I can find them. Regards to all from Canada. Chris
