Marine Rescue Batemans Bay ever vigilant with three calls this week

The ever watchful Batemans Bay Marine Rescue have proven their worth three times over in just the last few days. Last night a member of the public reported seeing a flare set off over the water and Bay Marine BM30 was crewed up and dispatched, searching for a couple of hours but finding nothing. The crews are all well trained in search and rescue and while it might have been a false alarm this time the Rescue Squad members are on 24/7 callout, even on a dark cold night. On Saturday BM20 was flagged down while it was on a training exercise. Just another day at the office for the squad offering a welcome tow to a broken down vessel. Sunday saw another call out. This time BM21 attended to a 5.5m half cabin vessel sitting stranded outside of the Bay area much to the relief of the visiting boaters from the ACT.

Above: Ever ready - even if it is cold and dark (aboard BM21, the 7m rigid-inflatable).
