(visited by Giuseppe C)

17-Dec-2018 -- On Coast Guard call outs, one of the critical pieces of information we receive is the location of the vessel requiring assistance. We then need to enter this into our navigation system and use it to provide an ETA for arrival on scene. Being able to enter this quickly and correctly is one of the many skills needed to be practiced.

So recently when out on patrol and between callouts I suggested a navigation exercise to visit a confluence in Port Philip Bay. We arrived on site after a 20min journey from our base in Patterson River.

For those interested, we were in an Australian Coast Guard Emergency response vessel which is based on a 9 metre Stabicraft and manufactured in New Zealand.

The sea's were not as calm as in previous visits by others, and the updated view shows the skyline of the city and suburbs has grown a little.
