Saturday 8 December 2012:
The new 6,5 metre rescue boat, Rotarian Schipper, was blessed at a ceremony held at the Bakoven sea rescue base this afternoon. Despite the strong South Easter the ceremony went according to plan and included a rescue demonstration. Station Commander Bruce Davidson commentated while the duty crew launched Rotarian Schipper to “rescue” two people on a stand up board who were “caught” by the wind.
