Sonny Evans Small Craft Harbour

“You have left your footprints, not only in the sand, but also in the sea”. Thus reads an extract from the book The Sonny Side of Life written by Hazel Lodetti, in honour of her late father, South Coast legend, ‘Sonny’ Evans, who was born in South Africa in 1910. These sentiments were expressed by the Acting Mayor of Shelly Beach on the occasion of Sonny’s 80th birthday bash held at Shelly Beach Ski-Boat Clubhouse back in 1990. Never were truer words uttered in recognition of a stalwart pioneer, a son of the South Coast, in fact, our very own ‘old man of the sea’, to whom the region owes so much. Long before anyone was enjoying the amenities now provided by the Sonny Evans Small Craft Harbour, this intrepid adventurer would set out to sea from the bay in front of his home to the north of the... read more

NSRI

The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) in Shelly Beach Station 20, based at the Sonny Evans Small Craft Harbour at Shelly Beach, was started in 1985 by Stan Walters, Commodore of the ski-boat club at the time. He recognised the need and fulfilled it, becoming the first station commander. The base has four rescue vessels – a 7.3m Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) Caltex Endeavour, a 5.5m RIB Caltex Challenger II, a 4.2m RIB Le Jen Mar and a Rescue Runner (a jetski adapted for rescue operations). The station has a tractor to launch and recover our NSRI vessels, but is also used to render assistance to other vessels using the harbour. The station also has a 4×4 rescue vehicle. There is a fully equipped first aid room where casualties can be treated by medical personnel. All sea rescue volunteers are trained as level 3 first aiders, that is, advanced first... read more
