The discipline was excellent, the crews were very well trained, and the focus of station 10 was as it should be - on being an excellent Sea Rescue station. Vic was very serious about saving lives at sea,' said Simon's Town station commander Darren Zimmerman.Vic's ashes will be scattered from Simon's Town's rescue boat, the Spirit of Safmarine III tomorrow, 23 December.
