The Prefect then took part in the weekly meeting in the presence of 24 volunteers. Himself Navy Commissioner until 2004, he told those present that he had always maintained friendly relations with the various stations and crews of the SNSM he had worked with.

Thanks to their know-how, their adaptability, their equipment, but also their deep commitment, the Sea Rescuers of the Saint-Martin station are able to respond effectively to any rescue situation, whether it is a breakdown, a leak on board, grounding, medical or medical evacuation, or even a fall overboard.

In short, a great respect to all these people who freely put their skills and their availability at the service of the world of the sea. Congratulations to them!
