COAST Guard Tin Can Bay's magazine Bay Tidings might have stopped in recent years but a new publication is now on the table - Coast Guard Rescue Sunshine Coast.

In 2010, Bay Tidings underwent a major facelift, which was well received by the local community and attracted positive comment from senior Coast Guard officers. Although publication of Bay Tidings stopped all is not lost.

Following an initiative by Coast Guard's Sunshine Coast Squadron, of which QF17 Tin Can Bay is a member flotilla, a new magazine has now been launched.

Former Bay Tidings editor Julie Hartwig was "head-hunted" by squadron officers to edit the new magazine, Coast Guard Rescue Sunshine Coast.

"It was a huge project to get off the ground - five into one was never going to be easy - but with a lot of consultation and discussion between the flotillas, the first issue finally got off the ground," she said.

"Sandy Strait and Caloundra experienced a few problems, but hopefully these will be ironed out for the second issue due out in late July."

The magazine is aimed at the general public with the goal of increasing Coast Guard's brand identity across the Sunshine Coast region. To this end, the five flotillas in the Sunshine Coast Squadron - Caloundra, Mooloolaba, Noosa, Tin Can Bay and Sandy Strait - contribute to the new publication.

The result is a quality magazine packed with articles of interest to the general boating community.

The first issue of Coast Guard Rescue Sunshine Coast is now available throughout the region and best of all, it's still free.

The Tin Can Bay edition is available from Coast Guard Tin Can Bay and from local businesses - call in and grab a copy.

The magazine is also available online - visit the QF17 Tin Can Bay page on the Coast Guard website at coastguard.com.au/flotillaqld/40-qf17 to download a copy.

It is also possible to visit the pages for other flotillas in the squadron to download their versions.

Alternatively, you can become an email subscriber and have the magazine emailed direct to your inbox - just contact the editor.
