The station at Bakoven was the first to be built by the initial volunteers, from Bakoven, Camps Bay and Clifton, in September 1967. But the rescue boat stationed there was the second in the fleet - thus her radio call sign is Rescue 2. The current rescue boat on station is the Rotarian Schipper, a 6.5 metre Gemini RIB (rigid inflatable boat) powered by two 90HP Evinrude engines. There are currently 32 volunteers serving on four crews which are on duty for one week of the month. All of our sea going crew are unpaid volunteers.
If you are willing and able to be a sea going volunteer - or a fundraiser for the Bakoven Station please visit the Sea Rescue website for more information.
So that we can keep protecting the unique Character and Heritage of the Bungalow Areas
