Lions Club of St Helens Donation

Today we received a fabulous donation of support from the Lions Club of St Helens. For a number of years the Lions have supported our volunteering that has enabled us to continue our services to the maritime community in the North East of Tasmania. We are incredibly grateful to President Peter Cecil, Secretary Jan Jasper and Treasurer Evan Robertson who made the donation at our Base Station. The contribution will go towards the redevelopment of our soon to be constructed building extension. Thank you Lions.

Latest Operation – SV Seeking Assistance

Our Latest Operation

Big day on the water for St Helens Marine Rescue after a call for assistance by SV La Pelicana. Gearbox issues and a rough night at sea, the evening before, saw skipper Terry anchor in Burns Bay. Our volunteer crew of Ken, Darren and John S undertook a tow into Georges Bay before rafting to the wharf. A copybook operation performed by three outstanding volunteers.

Game Fishing Club of Northern Tasmania’s Fishing Competition

Recently a most successful game fishing competition featured a large fleet of participants. This is one of four events throughout the year held by game fishing clubs. St Helens Marine Rescue carried out the radio support for this event. Starting in the early hours of the morning each vessel logged on with our radio operator, then on the hour reported their position. This is an essential part of the safety management system for the event. The Burns Bay carpark tells the story.

The weather was absolutely fabulous at the Burns Bay boat ramp. Standing room only as the radio operator witnessed multiple launchings via our Burns Bay camera.

We also have a webcam where Burns Bay can be viewed by the public via You Tube. This can be found by following these steps:

Step 1 In your internet browser go to You Tube.

Step 2 In the You Tube search engine, request Burns Bay Webcam.
