Bermagui boaters say thanks to their rescuers


The two boaters who were rescued offshore just south of Bermagui on Thursday were reunited at the Bermagui boat ramp Friday afternoon with some of the volunteers who were involved in the emergency response operation. 

Marine Rescue says it was a nice moment for everyone, and its members really appreciated meeting the people whose lives they helped save. 

Skipper Lindsay McGown described his rescuers as "awesome" and also had a safety message for other boaters, urging them to wear lifejackets andknow how to use their marine radios, rather than taking a “she’ll be right” approach to their safety on the water.
