The NSRI recently launched a new recuse vessel, the Rotarian Burnett, in recognition of the many years of support by Newlands Rotarian Richard Burnett. The vessel was christened at a ceremony held at the Hermanus NSRI station on 20 August 2019
Mr Burnett has fundraised for the organization for the past 20 years thanks to the annual Rotary Wine Auction in aid of the NSRI which he manages and sources wine lots for. The Hermanus edition of the wine auction series, which also takes place in Cape Town, was held the night before the boat christening and raised R113 000.00.
The Rotarian Burnett has already made its first rescue!
