Recently, Rescue Vessel Resolute and Rescue Helicopter 651 conducted another training exercise at sea.
Rescue 651 pilot gives Resolute skipper a specific straight heading and a speed of between 5 and 8 knots depending on the weather situation.
When all crew and equipment are safe and ready, the approach and winching operation starts.
It is always an exciting day and highlight for all crew involved.

Night rescues are a large part of our work and ongoing training is paramount to safety and efficiency to both our crew and the boating community.
Tonight’s was a perfect calm winter evening in the Swan River for some night training for our crew onboard Resolute and Gemini1.
We had time to practice Towing and Rafting as well as FLIR and Radar Navigation.

Nice photos.

It was a perfect winters day and we were kept busy!
The first was a 27ft cruiser that broke down off Fishing Boat Harbour. This was handed over our friends Cockburn Volunteer Sea Search & Rescue who took it back to Port Coogee.
We are currently enjoying 2 perfect sunset tows, one being a 28ft flybridge cruiser that broke down off Point Walter and the other a Black Watch off Mewstone Rocks
