Warrnambool Coast Guard stalwarts Adrian Calderwood and Barb Heazlewood have stepped down from their roles as floatilla and deputy commanders.
The pair have held the roles for six and eight years respectively.
Allan Wood has taken over as floatilla commander and Keith Prest as the deputy commander. The men paid tribute to the exceptional work of their predecessors.
“Our main objective is to maintain and build on the high level of community service that Coast Guard has achieved under Adrian and Barb,” Mr Wood said.
The pair plan to increase membership and member diversity, improve members’ skills, ensure a high level of equipment readiness and communication in the floatila and the public.
