Today only the rusting stern remains at the popular surfing, fishing and photography spot, a reminder of the brave efforts in the rescue and salvage missions. The running aground of the ‘Sygna’ occurred only one year prior to the beginning of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service. The RAAF was called in to assist with the ‘Sygna’ evacuation and the crew was air lifted off of the vessel. Salvage teams started their mission soon after. Laurie March and Peter Alcock were two local surf club members involved in the salvage mission of the ‘Sygna’. Both of them would go on to become original members of the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service the following year. From the archives
