Rescue Mooloolaba Summer 2023-24

I will take this opportunity to wish all Officers, members, Marine Assist Supporters, and the local boating community a Merry Christmas and remind you that QF6 is always there, if needed. The Flotilla at Mooloolaba is an operational station and is staffed 24/7 to listen out for that call.

Christmas Function
Our annual Christmas Dinner function will be held on 13 December. Our Flotilla Patron and other distinguished guests from the Water Police and Local and Federal Government representatives will attend. We look forward to an enjoyable evening. Thanks to our Deputy Flotilla Commander who has taken the task on in the absence of a Flotilla Christmas Coordinator.

Blue Cards
Many of our members should have applied for and received their Blue Card by now. This is a mandatory requirement for all members to transition to MRQ. There is no urgency. However, as we draw near to the possible transition date of 1 July 2024, it may pay to start the process now. If you need assistance, see the FAO or RSL for guidance.

Vessel & Radio Maintenance Teams
If not for the additional efforts that both maintenance teams put into maintaining the vessels and radio equipment, this flotilla would be in a worse state than the envious position that we now have. Thank you to all members of both teams.

Night Watch
On more than one occasion, QF6 have prevented loss of life because our Base Station Radio Operators take a Night Watch shift to listen out while everyone else sleeps.
