Bay ‘rescue’ is fuel for rivalry

Album launch before travel

Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

MUSICIAN Steve Romig will launch his latest album Sticky Fingers Played Here. The album is a change of pace for Romig, who is well known for blues and roots music. It delivers soul riffs, with a splash of funk and blues “to add grit�. Romig is embarking on an international publicity tour for the album in two weeks, and the launch in Mornington on Thursday will be his final appearance in Australia for a few months. “We are really happy to be launching the album on the peninsula among friends before I leave. Being able to support an amazing emerging female talent as well, is the cherry on top,� Romig said referring to Felix Thorne, who is making her first live performance since signing with Michael Snelson of Peninsula-based Soul Management.

Heading off: Steve Romig will launch his new album at Mornington this week before heading overseas. He’ll be joined on stage by fellow singer songwriter, Felix Thorne. Picture: Supplied

Felix was the first artist Soul invited to its “all female� label, Soul Sisters Artist Management. Romig describes Felix as a singer songwriter with a voice carrying “the power of a choir, and a brilliant pianist�. Manager Snelson says she is “simply delightful and one of those rare young artists who make music magic�. Felix will be recording her debut EP over the next few weeks. Romig will perform from 7pm on Thursday 14 July at Double G bar in Mornington. Entry is free and the album Sticky Fingers Played Here will be available at the launch or from 19 July at Steveromig.com Romig, of Tootgarook, turned up the

heat last week on Flinders MP Greg Hunt last week when he sang a protest song outside the MPs Hastings' office windows (“Note of ‘dischord’ outside MP’s office�, The News 5/7/16). The Environment Minister’s staff quickly left and locked the office before he played a note, but not before putting in a call to the Australian Federal Police. Despite the apparent lack of audience, Romig continued his protest, singing his song Come My Children, before noticing a black car of undercover officers watching from close by. “They explained their presence was precautionary only and agreed their presence was probably overkill given the circumstances,� he said.

VICTORIAN Marine Rescue Mornington president Tim Warner returned from a six-week holiday last weekend just in time for an emergency callout in the bay off Safety Beach. His crew quickly set out for an area 100 metres off the marina – only to find they were “rescuing� the Safety Beach Coast Guard boat, which had run out of fuel. Now, anyone with an insight into the rivalry between two of the state’s peak marine rescue bodies will understand the sensitivity of that situation. “Yes it was a rather unusual call,� Mr Warner said, stifling a grin. “We have a rather interesting relationship but it was all handled with good grace. “When we realised who they were we just treated it as a training run.� Coast Guard commodore Mark Brookes said the incident was “not a rescue�. “We’d had a motor change-over and the fuel gauges had not been calibrated correctly, so they showed we were full when we weren’t,� he said. “These things happen from time to time.� The two groups had scheduled a get together on Sunday afternoon to socialise and discuss the coming season’s activities.

Mr Warner said the VMR was the busiest rescue service in the state, with two boats on Port Phillip and one on Western Port all year. “We perform 235 police-activated rescues a year,� he said. “And if you take out the quiet times – such as midwinter – we can be out on the bays six or seven times a weekend.� Often VMR crews are called to rescue sick seals or penguins. “People look up marine rescue and our number comes up,� Mr Warner said. “One weekend over summer we had two calls for sick seals at Mt Eliza and Sorrento.� Mr Warner said boat users, or their worried families, should call 0419 233 999 as soon as they fear for their own or someone else’s safety. “If dad says he’s going fishing and will be back at 4pm, people should call us straight away if they don’t hear from him so we can start the search immediately,� he said. “We would prefer to start an emergency search at 4pm rather than the family waiting until 9pm to call us and then having to start searching in the wet and cold. “We don’t mind if we find dad happily fishing. We treat false alarms as good training.� Mr Warner has served the VMR for 37 years, including three terms as president.
