DSA's Rescue and Assistance Boat, The 'Annie'

Image: Volunteer driving the Annie Zodiac boat.

The 'Annie' is a 4.8m inflatable Zodiac powerboat. It provides assistance to DSA Vancouver's Martin 16s for emergency rescues, on-water boat repairs, towing, and assistance to solo sailors on the water. During regattas, The Annie functions as a coach boat, allowing the instructors to provide racing advice and tune boats between races.

The Annie is the first boat on the water in the morning and the last one to come in at night. Unless it is tied up on the Jericho pier, there is always an instructor aboard to operate the Annie.
