Why VISAR Exists

Since its formation VISAR has carried out well over 1,300 search and rescue missions. In 2016 we launched our boats 82 times and spent 135 hours responding to marine emergencies. Our fully trained volunteer crew, trainees and coordinators gave up over 2200 hours of their personal time to train, attend meetings and dedicate themselves to saving lives at sea. VISAR’s mission statement is simple – VISAR saves lives at sea.
