People who live on the West Coast are well known for their generous hospitality; so it came as no surprise that when we recently hosted our Life boat Club at the Yzerfontein rescue base, our crew stepped in to arrange a lovely snoek braai. (Rumour has it one of the locals caught and donated the fish). Thank you to all those who attended and thank you to the crew and their wives for the warm welcome.

It was lovely as was the food and the company. Thank you also for allowing me to bring our friends, they could not stop talking about it in the car going home. The beautiful book I will cherish for a long time and will enjoy reading it over and over again. I will also enjoy wearing the “beanie” that I was so lucky to win. Until we see each other again, take care and love from us both. SandyOur Life boat Club is made up of retired crew and retired supporters, most of whom have chosen to leave a gift to Sea Rescue in their will. Membership is free and we arrange social gatherings once or twice a year to keep in touch. Each member receives a free copy of our Sea Rescue magazine which is published 3 times a year.
