The Wynyard Yacht Club is affiliated with Surf Life Saving Tasmania (SLST) as a Volunteer Marine Rescue Centre (WVMR). The WVMR has assisted in many Search and Rescue Operations in the waters off Wynyard.
Boating public in distress who call the emergency 000 will most likely be assisted by WVMR members if it is in the area of operations between Table Cape to the west and Doctors Rocks to the east.
WVMR members have undertaken training provided by SLST. The highest qualification level is a Restricted Coxswain’s Certificate. The minimum qualification is the Elements of Shipboard Safety qualification.
New members are welcome to join the Unit but must be prepared to participate in the SLST provided training.
For enquiries about the WVMR contact the Unit Commander Chris Symonds on 0459 108 066.
