Marine Rescue Victoria Point

logo

We are a community not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers.

Safety of Life at Sea is our primary mission and you will regulary see our two rescue vessels on the water either doing just that or training to ensure we deliver when needed.

Boaties Market

Volunteer Marine Rescue Victoria Point is holding it’s Boaties Market at the Victoria Point State School grounds in Colburn Avenue. The gates open for site holders and buyers at 6:00 am.

The Commodore of the Rescue Unit said that the market had now become a well known event and continued to increase in popularity each time. He said that the unit now has a reputation for efficiency in the setting up of the stalls whilst the School always operated a great sausage sizzle with drinks also being available. He added that entry for buyers was by means of a donation with the proceeds going towards operating and maintaining the rescue vessels, looking after the building, it’s vehicles and safety equipment. Site holders pay a token $10 per site with there being no restrictions on the size required and no need to book ahead. We are always pleased to donate a percentage of our takings to the School’s P & C Association for their generosity in making the grounds available for the market he said and the interest shown in this year’s market is well in excess of the previous ones.

Our theme he said continues to be anything “from a fish hook to a power cruiser!” and it is rare that a site holder does not dispose of most or all of the items for sale.

Come along and support our well attended, big, successful fundraiser for your local community Marine Rescue Volunteers. You might just find that bargain you have been looking for!
