The 3 March meeting night will be a visit to the Sea Rescue Squadron in West Beach. We will meet at the club rooms at 5:30pm and car pool to Barcoo Rd, West Beach for a 6:30pm start.
The SA Sea Rescue Squadron is one of six independently incorporated Associations, in addition to the marine units of the State Emergency Service (SES) that are strategically located throughout the State. The majority of SAR operations are conducted under the co-ordination of the South Australia Police who are the recognised authority under the National Search and Rescue Plan. In addition to providing a water rescue capability, VMR Associations and the SES operate a number of limited coastal listening stations around the State that provide a listening watch over marine radio frequencies, particularly the VHF network.
