Noordhoek Ski Boat Club hands over gifts to National Sea Rescue Institute

2016-03-30 06:00

AS part of a community project, the Noordhoek Ski Boat Club recently handed over gifts to the National Sea Rescue Institute, Station 6.

This month, the Noordhoek Ski Boat Club (NSBC) committee handed towels to each crew member of Station 6 of the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) based in Port Elizabeth.

Gerald Burley, Chairman of the Ski Boat Club, said,“The club’s affiliation with the NSRI goes back as long as 18 to 20 years. As a club whose members join for their enjoyment of water sports and for sea going recreation, Sea Rescue is an essential service when a need arises for assistance in incidences that happen at sea.”

The NSBC committee aims to show their gratitude for this service by giving to the NSRI crew items that they need in their service to the community.

“Each crew member of Sea Rescue is a volunteer. In their small way, NSBC hopes to continue to support the NSRI and thank them for the time they spend training and their dedication to the cause of saving lives at sea,” Burley added.

This year, each crew member received a towel which was embroidered with the crew person’s name or nickname.

Justin Erasmus, NSRI Station 6 Deputy Station Commander, said he was delighted with the handover from the NSBC committee to the crew.

“Knowing that the station has support within the Port Elizabeth community is an encouragement to each of the station’s members,” Erasmus said.
