It's all happening here! Never a dull moment 😃
We were called in today by our Coast Guard Commander to assist in a call out to help a member of the public who's boat had broken down in Pumistone Passage. We were able to raft the small boat to Caloundra Rescue and take them safely to a nearby jetty. All's well that ends well 😃

Another fantastic day on the water on duty with the Caloundra Coast Guard. Both Geoff and I had time at the helm, totally unexpected 😃

We did a tracking through Pumistone Passage to a location called Roy's Farm, which is the boundary of our area. We received a call from a member of the public that there was a distressed turtle nearby. We took the rescue boat to the location but unfortunately it was in too shallow an area for us to be of assistance, so the radio room forward the details to an animal rescue organisation.

Today's main cruise was to Mooloolaba for a refuel, an activity we are required to take part in as part of our training.

It's been a demanding weekend, 7am to 5pm roster both days. Looking forward to our duty weekend next month and the ongoing training inbetween.

You certainly don't do half measures!! Should be adventures afloat and not retired afloat!

Good on you! Great way to get some helm time without paying the pier fees 😎

Thanks for sharing. Looks like a great thing to participate in.

Do you pair even know where neutral is? Yet another adventure, it’s all to much for me. But looks great fun!

I love watching your passion for life and the journeys you keep taking together.

Keep up the good work

This is our first weekend of Coast Guard duty and our first official involvement with our crew mates. First up this morning was an ashes scattering at sea. We then went on to do emergency procedure training on the boat including man overboard, emergency stopping and collision avoidance turns. It was an amazing day to be on the water with lots of sunshine and lots of laughs. ... See MoreSee Less
