Our Fundraising Goals

Inflatable Recreational Safety Boat. $65,000

The boats one of the most important pieces of the puzzle, on average over the last 3 years, we've helped 50 people per year back in to their craft, or assisted them back to the beach. With so many people on the water at one time, it's important that we can move around swiftly, handle many different types of sea condition, and take a number of paddlers on board at once. Your generous donations will make this a reality.

2m x 2m x 2m Race Marker Buoys. $876 Each

Easily you think this may not be an important piece, but let me explain why. In paddle sports, often in open water, there are obviously waves, sometimes they are more than a metre in height. Paddles of Surf ski's, Outrigger canoes, and other low sleek craft can often struggle to see a distance in front of them due to the conditions. As they pass one race buoy, it's important for their safety that they from a seated position can see the next race buoy so they have something to aim for, rather than guessing. Along a coast line is less difficult, many events we go to during the year are over 20km, some are 45 and 60km, some are in bays, some races depart a beach and the competitors race in a triangle or diamond pattern. Keeping everyone assured they are "on course" is a important safety factor.

Commercial standard First aid kit. $615

This is pretty straight forward. With our last vessel we had a small waterproof bag with a couple of small packs. With a larger boat, we'll be able to maintain out of the weather a full size First aid Kit. Having vessel to keep it dry also means we can carry electrical medical devices such as blood pressure monitors, electric ear thermometers, pulse oximeters and so fourth.

Automatic External Defibrillator $2195

Having used one of these on a person before, I know first hand how important it is to have this immediately. In our last boat, it was too wet to store one and too wet to use one. It's a must have.

9m Commercial rescue vessel in 2C Survey. $340,000

I spent 9 years working on this style of vessel saving lives and assisting broken down vessels. It's a workhorse. All of the paddle events are planned months in advance, and so much goes in to the planning, and with 100 - 700 paddlers attending such events, we don't get to plan for the weather. It's usually never flat, often 1.5 metres, and several times it's been 2.5 - 3 metres wave height. When you're the safety guy, there's no "I don't want too", or "it's to rough to save their life", you have to get out there fast and act. A vessel like this gives us a professional standard of equipment to act when required at a commercial standard.
