Rescues usually happen when conditions are challenging - that is why we spend so many hours practicing scenarios. Our crew need to be fit, capable and a close-knit team. When a new person joins it takes 6 months before they have received enough training and sea-time to join in on a rescue. Signing up as a volunteer is a long-term commitment and many of our crew have 10, 20 and 30 years of service.Watch our crew in Plett earlier this week as the casualty's wife films anxiously from land.
