Boating and fishing enthusiasts have been invited to learn more about Marine Rescue Woolgoolga at the unit’s Open Day this Sunday, May 19.

Visitors will be able to explore the unit’s boat and base, with members on hand to show people over Woolgoolga 30 and through the radio room, so boaters can watch the radio crew in action.

The Open Day will include brief talks about the benefits of using a marine radio, Logging On and Off with the Woolgoolga base every time boaters go out to sea and the importance of EPIRBs (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons).

Members also will give general safety advice, particularly about the need to wear lifejackets.

Open Day runs from 11am to 1pm at the unit’s base on Woolgoolga Beach. Light refreshments will be available.
