Rescue volunteers kept busy with 400 boats logged
IT WAS a hectic weekend for the Volunteer Marine Rescue in Gladstone, as residents took advantage of the fine weather and hit the water.
About 400 boat movements were logged over the weekend.
There were two rescues near Quoin Island, one was due to a blown motor and another due to a vessel running out of fuel.
VMR training coordinator Trevor Davies said the majority of people were doing the right thing and logging in.
VMR also held a training weekend, with 10 people learning seamanship skills.
Mr Davies said the group started on Saturday morning and had been out on rescues.
Gladstone police and the Volunteer Marine Rescue are asking those using the VMR logging service, to remember to log off.
