Favorite thing with SAR is: There are so many great things about volunteering with SAR. I would say my most favorite thing is the bond we have with each other as Crew members and the unwavering dedication to Crew safety and well-being.
Most memorable thing is: I have lots of great memories but one that stands out is a training exercise on the KM in Welcome Pass in pitch black darkness, in the dead of winter, with 25 knot winds and rough seas. That was an experience!

Quote: “I have spent most of my life in the ocean surfing and riding waves but very little time on the water in a boat. I have a healthy respect and understanding of the power of the ocean. I was completely out of my comfort zone when I started with SAR but thanks to the patience and dedication of the members of station 12, I have gained so much more confidence and as a result, achieved Advanced Crew status.”
