NSRI belongs to the IMRF (International Maritime Rescue Federation). We share our knowledge and expertise with other members and sometimes we are also in the position to pass on rescue craft and equipment. Over the years we have been privileged to receive retired rescue boats from the RNLI which we refurbished. Part of the obligation of belonging to the IMRF is that when we are able to, we pass on some of our retired vessels to other rescue organisations that are in need.Last week we did just that, passing on the retired nine metre Vodafone Rescuer, which was recently retired form service in Mossel Bay, to the Uruguay Sea Rescue Service (ADES) - the volunteer service in Uruguay.Thank you to Safmarine and all who made it possible to transport this rescue boat between continents.Vodacom rescuer en route to Uruguay.
