Marc de Vos, NSRI Table Bay station commander, said:NSRI has assisted the Robben Island residents with a resupply of food and essentials during the Covid-19 lockdown.Our NSRI Table Bay sea rescue duty phone was called on Tuesday, 07 April, with an appeal for assistance from the Robben Island residents who needed to arrange a resupply of food and essential goods that were running low.The approximately 13 local residents on the Island, some with families, needed the resupply and the Island's Health and Safety officer turned to NSRI for assistance considering that their normal supply chain was not in operation.The Island dwellers arranged friends and family on mainland to shop at Pick n Pay and drop the orders off individually at our NSRI Table Bay sea rescue base at the predetermined time of 16h30 on Wednesday.Taking all of the Covid-19 Department of Health precautions and following the health and safety standard protocols the sea rescue craft Spirit of Vodacom was prepared for launch and the approximate 300 kilograms of food and essential goods were loaded on board.With great care taken not to break the eggs our sea rescue craft departed the Port of Table Bay at 17h30, arriving at Murray Bay harbour at 17h50.On arrival at the Island the locals met us at Murray Bay harbour and their resupply was offloaded much to their delight and their express gratitude was conveyed.After all of the supplies were delivered, the crew departed the Island and returned to base and the resupply operation completed at 18h48.
