On Sunday 4 November over 150 CYCA members and guests were showcased the latest marine safety equipment, heard informative presentations from search and rescue organisations and were able to inspect the NSW Ambulance Rescue Helicopter

Displays from Harken, Wil Trading, Marine Safety Works, M.O.S.S. Australia, Stormy Seas, Sturrocks, SOS Marine, Great Circle Life rafts, Brighton Boat Bits, Mobialarm and Hypo Hoist allowed all attendees to inspect the latest safety equipment.

The highlight of the day was the arrival of the NSW Ambulance Rescue Helicopter in Rushcutters Bay Park. Luke Vanson, Tom Coakley and Paul Kendrick from NSW Ambulance conducted a presentation on the techniques used by the rescue helicopter when called to a marine rescue.

All who attended thought that the live demonstrations of the safety equipment were invaluable.

AMSA, Marine Resuce NSW, and the NSW Water Police also made presentations with two Marine Rescue NSW vessels on display in the pond.

The CYCA SOLAS Trusts raffle that was conducted on the day raised over $1,000. Thanks to Harken Australia, GME, Stormy Seas, Burke Pty Ltd, Jonathan Gravit (Strurrocks), Brighton Boat Bits, SOS Marine M.O.S.S. Australia and Marine Safety Works for their generous donation of prizes.
