Donor's celebrated the life of someone they love by placing a name on the side of our new, world-class rescue boat. When you honour your loved one, you will help us to build the next generation of rescue craft, constructed entirely in South Africa to save lives on South African waters. For a special person in your life there is no better honour, because each time our volunteer crew launch to save lives, the name and spirit of your loved one will be right by their side.

Zoom in a bit and press "CTRL" and "F" on your keyboard and type the name in or select the option to open in Acrobat. Click the find text icon on the left that looks like a magnifying glass and enter the name.

To say that Steve loved the ocean is such an understatement. I still see him playing in the waves with or without a boogie board. As long as he was in the ocean, he was happy. During one of our holidays in KZN, he saw a lady in trouble in the sea and rescued her. Her loved ones who were sitting on the beach were unaware that she was struggling. When I saw the NSRI advert about leaving a legacy, I didn’t think twice. This is such a wonderful way to honour our loved ones and at the same time contribute to a worthy cause. “Out of all the places to be, it’s best to be at the sea”. – By wife Annamarie & son Lloyd.
“The NSRI rescued my family in 1967 off the coast of Three Anchor Bay when our leisure craft caught alight at sea. It was their first boat, I recall vividly, a rubber duck! Ever since then we have supported the NSRI.” Marco van Embden, Cape Town The above photo is of the late Henry Van Embden, facing the camera, with an expression of such relief on his face. His son, Marco, facing him. This pic was taken after their NSRI Rescue - quote by his son Marco van Embden
“Our Mom loved swimming, the sea and was a great fan and supporter of the NSRI. Consequently, when we heard about the NSRI Launch A Launch campaign, we thought it would be something she would have loved, and we love the idea of her continuing to be involved with saving lives, the NSRI and the sea.” Clive, Heather, Keith, Lynn & Stacey Our Mom is bottom row, far left. - quote by her children Clive, Heather, Lynn & Keith
“My husband, Mike Drake, loved the sea and was a passionate yachtsman. The NSRI assisted him in 2005 when he had a heart attack while bidding farewell to the ‘Clippers’. When I saw the Launch a Legacy campaign I thought this was the perfect way to honour him.” quote by wife Di Drake – KZN
“Best donation in the world! You won’t believe what this project means to me. Thank you so, so much. This is the best gift that I could give my son, Riaan, who would have turned 30 on the 20th of November 2021, if he didn’t drown in 2014, but now I also know that he will be part of every rescue operation RESCUE 17 does and this is AWESOME!! What a Legacy!” – Naomie van der Walt
