Fifty years ago Sea Rescue was established after a fishing trawler sank off Still Bay. This week history is again being made in Still Bay as we trial a first ever full time rescue course.Traditionally we run part time courses with weekly sessions spaced over 6 months. We value innovation and we have a group of volunteers able to commit two weeks to a full time course - so, we have compacted our curriculum and we look forward to a new experience. After the course, we will review and refine the concept and content in our effort to keep on learning and improving.Our first Full Time Rescue Course is underway. Enrico Menezies and Bruce Sandmann are assisting with the theoretical and practical parts of the two week course. We had an overwhelming response to our call for participants and we are running a waiting list for future courses.Welcome to our candidates: Debbie Fraser, Shawn Thompson, Carlien van der Bank, Charles de Beer, Rohan Scott, Stefan Grove, Eugene vd Walt, Albert Smith, Revan Heppel and Edwin Jones.
