Assist x3 Saturday 15th September 2012

Three surfers required assistance from lifeguards operating the RWC (Rescue Water Craft) on Saturday afternoon during the incoming tide.

Due to the strong current on the incoming tide produced by the large spring tide the surfers all found themselves struggling to make it back to shore unassisted.

The RWC was deployed to patrol the point area throughout the afternoon and each of the surfers were assisted by RWC driver Nathan Evans who picked them up using the rescue sled and transported them across the bay to an area they could continue to surf more safely.

RWC driver: Nathan Evans
Conditions: Overcast, 2-3 foot surf, Moderate Winds

Notes: The Rescue Water Craft (RWC) is a specially modified rescue waverunner commonly known by the tradename jetski.
