24 years ago Rotarian Richard Burnett came up with the idea of hosting an annual wine auction to raise funds for the NSRI. Since then, the proceeds have funded rescue vessels, rescue vehicles, rescue base buildings and our water safety education programme. Richard and a committee of Rotarians from the Rotary Clubs of Newlands and Table Bay have driven this project successfully and this year will see the first annual wine auction in Hermanus on 16 August and the 24th annual Cape Town wine auction on 10 October.The proceeds of the wine auctions held in 2018 and 2019 will fund the new 6.5 metre rescue vessel at Hermanus and will be named 'Rotarian Burnett'.Our sincere thanks to Richard and his fellow Rotarians for their unwavering support. Richard Burnett and Jenny Howard, outgoing President of the Rotary Club of Newlands. Richard was recognised for his 50 years of service to Rotary.
