You may have heard the sirens and seen all of the emergency vehicles racing down Morrison Road on Saturday, Jan 26th (I was kayaking up the river at the time). It turns out there was a near-drowning just down the beach at Outeniquastrand when a local swimmer found himself caught in a rip current and being swept out to sea. The NSRI were quickly on the scene and fortunately it ended well. See the Mossel Bay Advertiser for more on the story. The NSRI has a guide to Rip Currents (which are even stronger during Spring Tides) on their website.
