RACQ Capricorn Rescue and coast guard work together

RACQ Capricorn Rescue plan to perform a two hour water operations training exercise about 10:30am tomorrow and Friday near Wreck Point off the Capricorn Coast.

RACQ Capricorn Rescue officers and the Yeppoon Coast Guard will work together on the exercises, with a hi-line vessel transfer, Mk 8 flare deployment, rescue crewman water winch dummy extraction and winch recovery from a life raft planned. 

The exercise will be visible from shore in the hope of seeking community involvement and will also provide a further opportunity to operate with the Yeppoon Coast Guard.
