Welcome to Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group

Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group is located at Point Peron, with its Headquarters housing Cape Peron, Crew Room, Training Centre and the VN6KC Radio Tower. The FSR Jaimee Lee is permanently moored on the jetty adjacent to the public ramps, fuelled and ready to respond at a moment’s notice.

 

Since its conception the Rockingham Volunteer Sea Rescue Group’s membership has grown to 450 members of which 65 are “active”, manning the rescue vessels, the radio tower and telephones to provide the boating public of Rockingham and surrounding districts with emergency coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 

The duty crew man our rescue vessels and are on standby for a period of 24 hours, with crews rotating over a 7 day period, 365 days per year. We also have administration staff undertaking various duties at our Headquarters, all of which are volunteers and local to Rockingham.

 

Duty Radio Officers commence work at 0600 hours, standing 4 hour radio watches until 2200 hours every day of the week in the summer months (September through to April). An overnight telephone watch is maintained on our Emergency Number 9528 2222. Radio watch hours are reduced in the winter months  (May to August) 0700 hours to 1800 hours , with a telephone watch operating from 1800 to 0600 the following day.

Hi All,
Just keeping you updated on public works to the two Pam Beach boat ramps.

"Mariners are advised that works to upgrade the two Palm Beach boat ramps at Mangles Bay will commence on Monday 11 September 2017 until Friday 3 November 2017.

These works include rock stockpiling activities using a land based excavator one boat ramp at a time.

Works will occur during daylight hours, Monday to Friday with the provision to work on Saturdays as required. The works are scheduled to proceed as follows:

Eastern ramp: 11 September - 20 October 2017. The eastern ramp will be closed during this time but the western ramp will remain open.
Western ramp: 20 October - 3 November 2017. The western ramp will be closed during this time but the eastern ramp will remain open.
Each works area will be encompassed by a silt curtain and marked by a yellow buoy, approximately 1 metre in height, equipped with flashing yellow light.

Chart Reference: DoT Chart - WA001 - Ocean Reef to Cape Peron.
Mariners are advised to keep well clear of the above operations and consider using alternative boat launching facilities at Point Peron and Kwinana during anticipated peak periods.
