Invitation to Attend the Marine Safety Day - Sunday 4 November 2012

This Sunday, 4 November 2012, the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia will host a Marine Safety Equipment and Demonstration day that will focus on rescue at sea. 

A number of key organisations who are involved in rescue at sea have agreed to attend and give presentations on how they deal with life threatening emergencies and incidents at sea. 

Representatives from the Australian Marine Safety Authority (AMSA), NSW Water Police, NSW Ambulance Helicopter Rescue and Marine Rescue NSW will be in attendance. NSW Water Police and Marine Rescue NSW will have their vessels on display in the CYCA pond and will be available for inspection.

A long range rescue helicopter is confirmed to arrive in Rushcutters Bay park at 9.45am for a public display and then disembark at 11.30am. 

There will also be displays from major safety equipment suppliers including live demonstrations in the CYCA pond of the very latest in MOB safety and retrieval gear including different styles of inflatable PFDs, life rafts, life-slings, Dan buoys, PLBs and a Hypo Hoist demonstration, along with other life-saving and crew recovery equipment (including electronic), all of which may be ordered on the day. 

The day will commence at 9.30am with equipment displays and in water demonstrations, followed by presentations from the rescue organisations, which are scheduled to commence at 10.30am through until 2pm.

The Marine Safety Information day is free and open to all - anyone who goes to sea should attend and bring their entire crew. It is hoped that this day can be conducted on an annual basis.

A raffle will also be conducted (and drawn) on the day with great prizes donated from our exhibitors. All monies raised will go to the CYCA SOLAS Trusts - the sailors' own charity.
