In 2019, Mr Mark Sampson won the Non-Professional Search and Rescue Award after risking his own life to save a friend.

Around 2pm on 13 January 2019, Mark Sampson and a friend were sailing on a 14ft catamaran when it capsized one kilometre from shore near Point Vernon, throwing them into the water.

Mark’s friend was unable to swim but was fortunately wearing a life jacket. Fearing the worst Mark ensured his friend was safely clinging to the upturned vessel before going for help. After an hour of swimming Mark finally made it to shore where he was able to raise assistance.

Mark was uncertain how watertight the vessel was and two volunteer Marine Rescue vessels were tasked to the rescue. AMSA was advised and tasked a Challenger rescue jet and Rescue 522 helicopter from Bundaberg to the search area.

The Volunteer Marine Rescue located Mark’s friend still grasping to the upturned vessel. The other rescue vessels were called off and Mark’s friend was taken to Hervey Bay Hospital suffering shock and dehydration and was released that afternoon.

After the incident, Mark’s friend vowed "…never to go sailing again!"
