Thursday 16 August 2012, Centrum Guardians, SABC3 at 22h10. Repeated Friday 17 August at 10h00.
Local Rescue Swimmer, Torsten Henschel, and his team from Wilderness Sea Rescue saved the life of local schoolboy, Ruan Klopper, in January this year. He has reached the semi-finalist stage of this year’s Centrum Guardian Competition.
Don’t miss the dramatic documentary of their rescue on SABC 3. The actual sequence of events was re-enacted for the Centrum Guardians Competition. What is even more amazing is that all the people you will see were actually involved that day in January – even Ruan braved the rip current once more to be filmed as himself!
Sea Rescue is the only semi-finalist this year, operated entirely by volunteers within a Non-Profit Organization. You will see how effectively they keep our local beaches safer.

Please help us to bring the Centrum Guardian trophy back to the Garden Route, and support Wilderness Sea Rescue at the same time.
