  • Royal Australian Navy International Fleet Review
  • September 26, 2013

The Royal Australian Navy International Fleet Review promises to be one of the largest displays of naval vessels and tall ships seen on Sydney Harbour – and Marine Rescue NSW will be at the heart of the action.

Up to 40 warships, 16 tall ships and 8,000 naval personnel from more than 20 nations will take part in the Fleet Review from October 3 to 11.

About 1.4 million people are expected to attend the event, which will culminate in a $10 million fireworks display on October 5 that organisers say will be “bigger and better than New Year’s Eve”.

The Review celebrates the centenary of the first entry of the Royal Australian Navy fleet into Sydney on October 4, 1913.

Marine Rescue NSW will be supporting this international gala, with six of our vessels assisting with safety control for the large fleet of spectator boats expected to join in the festivities.

The vessels, from Marine Rescue Botany Port Hacking, Port Jackson, Middle Harbour, Cottage Point and Broken Bay, each will have a crew of four volunteers on board to direct spectator traffic.

Additional boats from Port Jackson and Middle Harbour will be placed on standby in case of breakdowns or first aid response and the MR Terrey Hills radio base will monitor public marine radio traffic.

In the lead-up to the Sydney event, 35 warships will gather on Jervis Bay from September 30 to October 3, also attracting a large local spectator fleet. Marine Rescue Ulladulla, Shoalhaven and Jervis Bay will have vessels on the bay over the four days.
