Marine Rescue NSW crew assists search for missing swimmer off Bronte

Volunteers from Marine Rescue Port Jackson and Middle Harbour were deployed on board Marine Rescue NSW vessel Port Jackson 31 this morning to assist Marine Area Command with a multi-agency search for a missing swimmer off Bronte.

Marine Rescue NSW Inspector Courtney Greenslade said the volunteer crew on board Port Jackson 31 joined the search off Bronte at 8am.

“Port Jackson 31 conducted multiple legs of a parallel line search with Water Police vessels from Ben Buckler Point in the north to Botany Bay Heads in the south.

“Conditions were fair offshore this morning with a 1.5 metre swell and a moderate northeasterly wind but they are expected to deteriorate across the day.

“PJ 31 began returning to base at 11:30am.

“Marine Rescue NSW crews are on standby to assist further with the search should our volunteers be required by Marine Area Command,” Inspector Greenslade said.

Marine Rescue NSW is a volunteer based not-for-profit professional organisation dedicated to keeping boaters safe on the water and supporting local communities.
