On Tuesday 28 July, members of the public notified Surf Rescue 50s crew who where on standby at base at Kiama Harbour regarding a person in distress 1.5km off the harbour. SR50 was quickly launched with the 3 to 4 foot surge at the boat ramp making the launch difficult. SR50 shortly after reached the patient navigating the 5 meter swell to do so. After getting the person aboard, the crew then took them to the harbour and assisted ashore. Afterwards the crew waited for additional resources to retrieve the vessel in the swell. A successful job done in less than ideal circumstances
