Station 37 Jeffreys Bay this afternoon assisted a young girl in difficulty using a torpedo buoy at The Point Beach, at the same spot where they had earlier returned the pink buoy.
Station Commander Rieghard Janse van Rensburg called in the story. Click here to listen to the message Rieghard.mp3
After spending the whole day tracking down the missing buoy, Rieghard reinstalled it with help from those who had taken it.
Later that afternoon an incident occurred at that same spot – illustrating the need for these rescue buoys.
Rieghard send this info on a voice note. All our rescuers are unpaid volunteers and he was on his way to a photoshoot, which is his day job.
