The National Sea Rescue Institute Shelly Beach is always on hand to assist those in trouble on our coastline – no matter the circumstances. Such was the incident on Saturday.
Eyewitnesses suspected that two men on a canoe were in difficulty just off-shore in Uvongo. Without a second thought, NSRI Shelly Beach immediately launched the sea rescue craft, Spirit of Dawn to respond.
On arrival on the scene, the men were found safe on their canoe. The men confirmed that they were not in trouble and did not require assistance.
