"There is little better than a day out on the water. Whether it's a gentle sail, a blast up the coast, lines over the side, a dive to explore the bottom, or a get together with mates....

...there is little worse than finding yourself in trouble in that patch of paradise, wishing that you knew more, or that your family or crew could get you and your boat safely back to shore if ever they had to."

Coastguard looks out for the safety of every person who goes to sea off our coast or enjoys any of the region's harbours, or beaches.

A 6m runabout ran aground on a sand bank returning from a day of  ski biscuiting and wake boarding in Paremata Harbour (Pautahanui Arm of Porirua Harbour)  at approximately 2:45pm today. Due to the falling tide it had to remain there for the day and we returned the owner back to it at 9pm to retrieve it.

We used MR2 to tow it off the sand once the water level was high enough and safely returned to the launching ramp between the bridges.

We received a call from Trevor Burgess to say that a jetski was taking on water out in the channel and had beached himself. We responded in MR1 to tow him back to Mana Marina but didn't find anyone.

He contacted us later to say that he had managed to recover himself by swimming the jetski back to the ramp between the bridges at Plimmerton.
