“A stolen ring buoy ~ a stolen life”.

Volunteers spent the day recovering ring buoys that were maliciously discarded along our City’s quays. Remember, interfering with life saving equipment is a criminal offence. Please report any such activity to Waterford Garda Station on 051-305300. “A stolen ring buoy ~ a stolen life”.

HikeCycle 2016

This Saturday July 23rd is HikeCycle 2016. In Aid of Waterford Marine Search and Rescue and Carrick Search and Rescue. Hike only, Cycle only or do both 🙂 To make sure that HikeCycle 2016 is a safe event, we have a strict speed limit in place during the cycle of (20-22kph). We understand that some parts of the road will be faster than others but we must stress that if you break away from the pack and out of the relative safety of the pace car, you will no longer come under the cover of the event insurance… HikeCycle 2016 is NOT a race. It will however be a good test of endurance, stamina and lots of fun. Registration is from 8am sharp until 9:30am at which point we will start the first half of the cycle. If you do not register in time, you cannot take part in the event. So please make sure you are registered before 9:30am. Before the start of the event we will hold a short briefing with all participants outlining rules and what is the order of the day, including safety on the road, Bike storage/security, Hike, Changing facilities, and not forgetting BBQ. If you are participating in the ‘Hike’ only, you will need to register with our team in Kilcash village on the day at 11:00am where you will be briefed and given instruction. And finally, please have your sponsorship cards with you on the day and any monies will be collected by our team. Thank you for your help and cooperation. https://www.facebook.com/HikeCycle2016/?fref=ts

Our crews attended the Daytripper festival here in Waterford City over the weekend for our bucket collection. Christy Dignam and Billy Mcguinness of Aslan decided to pitch in and give a helping hand with our crews. 😀 We would like to thank the kindness of the people of Waterford who’s generosity and good wishes at the festival has been nothing short of amazing.
