About Us

Coast Guard Around the River Fun Run is organized by the Carrum Flotilla of the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard – VF07. Founded in 1966, VF07 is one of the busiest flotillas in Victoria, averaging 120-150 assists every year. We patrol from Seaford to Sandringham and well beyond if other flotillas are not patrolling.


The Australian Volunteer Coast Guard is a national marine rescue organisation run entirely by volunteers. Our volunteers work hard to raise funds to deliver marine rescue and education services across across four states and Territories, from Port Vincent in South Australia right around our coastline to Darwin in the Northern Territory.


Our Services include:

-Patrol of local and coastal waters

-Marine Radio Services

-Search and Rescue

-Public Boating Education


We have vessels and radio bases in:



-South Australia​

-Northern Territory
