Thanks to PJ Lemmer of Harbour Island Properties and the new Krystal Beach Hotel, Gordon's Bay's 14.5m rescue boat Jack Riley will be temporarily moored in Harbour Island.Silting has occurred at the mouth of the Gordon's Bay Old Harbour, to the extent that sometimes we can not launch this rescue vessel, especially at spring low tide. Jack Riley needs an extra length mooring to accomodate her size and thanks to Harbour Island Properties we have found that mooring.She will now lie in front of the new Krystal Beach Hotel.This is a temporary arrangement while we wait for the Old Harbour mouth to be dredged. Station 9's rapid response rescue craft are not affected by the silting and they will continue to launch from our rescue base in the Old Harbour.The Jack Riley was sponsored by, and named after, the late Jack and Irene Riley from Helderberg Village in Somerset West.Pictures are available on Sea Rescue's Flickr page.Gordons Bay_4350aGordons Bay_4359a
