Paramedics and Crew board the Break O'Day
We are very pleased to announce that St Helens Marine Rescue was successful in its application to the Tasmanian Community Fund
for funding to replace the outboard motors on the Break O’Day
. The Tasmanian Community Fund
awarded a grant of $28,268.19 to St Helens Marine Rescue Association in Grant round 25, and this will be used to purchase two new Evinrude E-TEC 115-HP
RV Freycinet in Full Flight
The RV Freycinet
received a very welcome update in the form of two new Garmin touchscreen chartplotters
. These units have added a new level of sophistication to our navigation capability onboard the vessel.
On 1 September 2012, at the occasion of the annual blessing of the fleet, we received a sizable donation from Leigh Kelly Agencies in the form of polar fleece jackets for our crews.
Thank you also to Tasmanian Locksmiths for donating the meat for the barbeque and to Bob at the St Helens Bakery for supplying bakery goods.
