Surf club rescue gear set adrift

Damien McSkimming woke this morning to news no volunteer wants to hear - vandals had broken into his surf club's storage shed and set rescue equipment adrift down the river.

Mr McSkimming is the vice president of the Red Rock Corindi Surf Life Saving Club and got a phone call this morning from council workers saying one of their surf boats was almost submerged and other rescue equipment was floating up river.

Vandals had broken the door off the South Grafton storage shed, dragged the surf boat across the concrete floor, causing unknown damage, and let three surf skis and two boards adrift in the river.

It took volunteers hours to get the rescue equipment back and cleaned up.

If anyone has any information, contact Grafton police on 6642 0222.
