Coast Guard vs Rough Seas... Checto Bar
On November 16, 2009 A pair of 47' foot Coast Guard lifeboats were filmed
doing rescue manuvers at the Checto River Bar entrance during rough seas.
Wave heights were close to 11' feet at the river bar entrance. The coast
guard also deployed a dummy during the rescue training. You'll see it
during the slow motion section of the video this is NOT a dead body like
some might think.

The German Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS) was founded on 29 May
1865. Since then it has carried out search and rescue missions along the
German North Sea and Baltic Sea coasts independently and accepting sole
For more than a century, German life-saving missions at sea had been a
private matter.The DGzRS held this statutory task practically from within
its own traditions. As early as 1965, the role of DGzRS as sole maritime
rescue service provider was laid down in the German Maritime
Responsibilities Act. Further legal frameworks for the German rescue
service were established in March 1982: with reference to the International
Convention on Maritime Search and Rescue, adopted in Hamburg in 1979 (IMO
Convention), an agreement between the German Ministry of Transport and the
German Maritime Search and Rescue Service formally conferred the
undertaking, administration and co-ordination of the search and rescue
service to DGzRS.
Both parties agreed that the DGzRS would continue to carry out SAR services
as a charity on an independent, voluntary basis and financed by its own
funds. In fact, the DGzRS assumed a more or less public duty without
claiming one cent of the public funding that is normally awarded to
Approximately 300,000 sustaining supporters keep the rescue crews
operational through regular contributions. There are various provisions
making sure that the funds entrusted to DGzRS are used appropriately to
fulfil the many tasks of the organisation or are put aside for mid-term
projects. 186 full-time employees and more than 800 volunteers are on call
on 20 rescue cruisers and 41 lifeboats. 54 stations in the North Sea and
Baltic Sea, on the mainland and the islands form a dense rescue network.
All missions are co-ordinated by the central MRCC Maritime Rescue
Co-ordination Centre in Bremen.
The DGzRS board of Chairmen operates on an honorary basis: the highest
legislating body is the steering committee. Its main duties include support
to and nomination of the board, amendments to the statutes and regional
representation. Three full-time managing directors are responsible for the
areas of rescue service/operations,
business administration and finance, as well as press and PR activities.

Range Rover Sport
The all-new Range Rover Sport has been designed to capture the distinctive
DNA of its predecessor, but with a bold evolution which has placed it
firmly at the heart of the marque's striking new three-model portfolio
between the Range Rover and the Evoque.
Range Rover Sport occupies a unique position within its segment, and the
new model builds on those core strengths with a design which confirms its
status as the definitive premium Sports SUV. With its 'faster' windscreen angle, streamlined
profile and sloping roofline, the new Sport is 8 percent more aerodynamic
than the previous model and achieves a drag figure of Cd 0.34.
While it was developed alongside the Range Rover and shares some
commonality with its sister vehicle, the all-new Range Rover Sport benefits
from 75 percent unique parts, a significant number of which directly
influence the way the new Sport looks and feels.
"The new Range Rover Sport is the ultimate luxury SUV. A new Range Rover
Sport for a new era. Relevant, sustainable and utterly desirable.
Alongside the all new Range Rover, and the Range Rover Evoque, the new
Range Rover Sport represents the third distinct product in Land Rover's
product revolution. Firmly establishing it as a powerhouse British brand,
with exceptional Design at its core," said Land Rover Design Director and
Chief Creative Officer, Gerry McGovern.
