MarineRescue App

The new MarineRescue App is making it easier than ever for boaters to Log On, Log Off and stay safe on NSW waters. It's the only app that will connect you directly to Marine Rescue NSW.

Exclusive to Marine Rescue NSW Radio Club Members!

Every time Marine Rescue Radio Club members use the new MarineRescue App to Log On AND choose to use the 30-minute safety tracking service between March and July 2015 they are entered in a draw for a prize package valued at more than $2,500: a 5hp Suzuki 4-stroke outboard PLUS a Raymarine Dragonfly with chart plotter and depth sounder.

It’s our way of saying thank you for their ongoing support for their local Marine Rescue unit and for Logging On and Off while they’re on the water.

The winners are:

March: Dale Coutts, of Stockton. Dale is a Radio Club member of MR Newcastle.

April: Michael Harvey, of Deniliquin. Michael signed on as a temporary Radio Club member of MR Merimbula over summer.

May: Tim Knox, of Evans Head. Tim is a Radio Club member of MR Evans Head.

June: Robert McClung, of Forestville. Robert is a Radio Club member of MR Terrey Hills (Sydney).

The MarineRescue App makes it easier than ever for boaters to stay safe on NSW waters. It’s the only app that connects you directly to Marine Rescue NSW. In just a few minutes, you can Log On with Marine Rescue NSW and be on your way, knowing someone’s watching out for you. When you Log On with us, we know where you’re heading and when you’re due to return so we can quickly start a search if you’re not safely back as expected.

You can choose for us to track your journey so we know where to start looking in an emergency. The app is a great addition to your marine radio and EPIRB in your safety toolkit.
