When cruising in Canada, we often see the boats of the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue at marinas up and down the BC Coast. Once in a while, we see them out on the water training or performing a rescue mission. They are well-equipped and well-trained.
Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue
Did you know they are volunteers in the local communities? Often their boats have been purchased with funds raised by the community just like volunteer fire departments in the US. In the past, they were known as the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary. This video presents the story of their mission and the fundraising they did for a new training center. The video is about 9 minutes long, but it is informative, and a chance to learn more about this dedicated group of men and women.
The next life they save could be you and your crew.
