  1. Invites out to Founder Members

  2. In The Beginning!

    This is a reincarnation, of an original idea of mine, that I had over a decade ago! It has been reinvented many times, but always seems to come back to this... I've wanted to build an online community, for like minded people, who are actively involved in rescues from water. Now this could happen out in the big oceans, or on a lake or river inland. No matter where it is, people need assistance from time to time and there are many people prepared to help, at a moments notice! They can be full time employed or volunteers, it really doesn't matter! The important thing is, they are there! (We are there!) This global enterprise is available for you to share your ideas, skills, aspirations, knowledge, pictures, missions etc. It would be great to get a community that you want to be a part of, that will grow into something amazing. All I ask is that you be actively involved in some way with an organisation, association, club, force, unit or business that is directly involved in Saving Lives Around The World! All it needs is for you to register and take part in this growing network of rescuers from around the globe, to make this our first port of call, to interact with someone doing the same role maybe on the other side of the planet.. Your input is vital to the success of this website, so don't be afraid to put your suggestions and ideas forward. Who knows, you could even become a site moderator or article contributor. Like any maritime rescue - I can't do this alone..!
  3. 22 Rescued off Danger Point

    22 crew rescued as fishing vessel sinks off Cape coast More than 20 crew members were saved during a rescue operation after their fishing vessel started to sink in rough seas off Danger Point on the Cape South Coast. The South African maritime safety authority’s maritime rescue coordination centre (MRCC) coordinated the rescue of 22 crew in the early hours of Friday after the fishing vessel Ellis S, owned by Sevlak Investments, began taking on water off Danger Point which is near Gansbaai.

  4. The General Idea

    The idea behind this website is to allow people involved in the maritime rescue scene, in any way, have somewhere to gather and share information, ideas and techniques with eachother. In doing so, we can become familiar with new and different ways, of doing the same tasks thus helping eachother become better at 'what we do'. Those in the know, will realise this is kind of a re-born idea, from more than a decade ago! In the first version of this domain, there were flaws to the original idea and a lack of technology with which to persue it. So after a lot of thought and many revisions of the original plan, it has become a reality once more. This time without the hiccups and interuptions of the past, to get in the way of progress. I am (and always have been) proactive in the belief that we as a "community", like to share what we have learned and above all else we like to help others, mostly without thanks or praise because we believe in what we do... Many thanks for taking the time to read this and hopefully you will be encouraged to join us and take part in the future success of Maritime-Rescue.com
  5. Website Launch

    Today is the day the website was launched. It was a quiet affair, just Maritime at the keyboard, loading up some early details and arranging the look & feel.
