Coastguard Message

Welcome to all those coming to enjoy the coast this summer. We want everyone to stay safe throughout the season and into the New Year. 

All those people heading out on watercraft, we advise that you have your vessel serviced, do all your checks and make a trip report before heading out, and be mindful of your surroundings, the conditions and others. Never forget your life jacket, and that includes when rock fishing, boating in the harbour or using paddle craft. We encourage everyone to join Coastguard, it helps us to help you. Another way to help us is participating in the annual raffle which directly generates much needed funds for our unit. Be safe in, on or under the water this summer. Do not hesitate to call 111. Thanks to our sponsors, Gallagher Group Ltd and Rylock Waikato, we are here to help unconditionally.

Stay safe, RVCG.
