On Saturday the 17 August, volunteers, supporters and Rotarians of Rotary Table Bay, Newlands and Hermanus gathered at our temporary Hermanus rescue base to bless their new 6.5 metre vessel Rotarian Burnett. 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.We are proud to be associated with such an amazing organisation like Rotary. Thank you for your unwaivering support to Sea Rescue and our vision of Saving Lives, Changing Lives and Creating Futures.
