Definitive listing of VMR stations

Now that there is to be improved coordination between the Coastal Patrol and Coast Guard flavours of Volunteer Marine Rescue organisations, we now have a definitive list of VMR stations in NSW on the Coastal Patrol Website. Unfortunately, it appears only linked from inside “New Standard Operating Procedures for more effective NSW Offshore Vessel Tracking“, rather than clearly linked from the site’s menu.

Because of  the way the Coastal patrol site was designed, you can’t simply save the URL of a page. As of today (10 Feb 09), here is the link to the latest VMR list (including their email addresses – Whoopee!).
I hope Coastal Patrol doesn’t change this URL every time the list gets updated. I’ll try and keep the link up to date, please leave a comment if the link appears broken…

[Update December 2012  The Coastal Patrol website is no longer active – the Marine Rescue website now covers the operation of Volunteer Marine Rescue stations in New South Wales. Unfortunately there no longer seems to be a downloadable list of stations, although you can find details for individual stations from this page. For anyone who prefers to have a printed list of coastal stations with contact details handy – Rob’s Passage Planner is an excellent source of such information]
