NCS RESINS SPONSORS NSRI
For those of us lucky enough to spend time on the sea off South Africa’s often-wild coastline, the red and yellow paint scheme of the NSRI’s rescue craft is instantly recognisable.
And those vivid colours evoke different responses to different people. To the onlooker, safe on shore, the boats are simply exciting to watch as they smash through the waves, spray flying… And to the crew members, the colours represent the team; pride perhaps and belonging.
But to the sailor, fisherman or paddler, struggling in the water, the colours represent something much more: relief, safety and a chance to live another day.
