The idea behind the open day held on Saturday 31 January was to give members of the community an opportunity to have a behind-the-scenes look at what happens at a rescue base, to meet the volunteers who serve at the base and, secondly, to recruit members of the community to serve as volunteers.From 10h00 slowly the residents of the KZN South Coast started to trickle in and as the day progressed more and more arrived.“It is difficult to estimate how many people actually visited us on Saturday because we weren’t counting. We were grateful that they arrived and, more importantly, we are grateful for the support each and every one expressed for the work Sea Rescue does, not only in this area, but throughout the country,' Station Commander, Pieter Coetzee, said at the debrief.A number of people expressed interest in joining the base as trainees. They were all asked to come to the crew meeting on Thursday 5 February 2015.“The proof of the pudding will be in how many of those who expressed interest come on Thursday evening,” Pieter added.“Either way it was a successful day because we could interact directly with the people we serve”.Trainee crew member Krish Venter painting faces in the boathouse.
