Since 1960 the Bahamas Air Sea Rescue Association of Grand Bahama made its mandate to save persons in distress on the sea. Solely manned and operated by volunteers, BASRA has saved many lives and been involved in thousands of rescues.
If you plan on coming to the Bahamas you should really think about being a member. http://basragrandbahama.com/
When Jon and I started sailing Kasidah we found this site and decided this was one of the most important organizations we could join. Not only for us but for every boater out there, one day you will be glad you have volunteers like these guys.
