A res­cue last March by the Mana crew was ad­judged the best of 2014 at the na­tional Coast­guard New Zealand Awards of Ex­cel­lence. On March 4, and with a cy­clone bear­ing down on Cook Strait, Coast­guard Mana was paged about two fish­er­men in dif­fi­culty in the strait. In six-me­tre seas – In­ter­is­lander ferry sail­ings were can­celled – the fish­er­men were lo­cated and brought back to Mana. They ar­rived just be­fore the cy­clone brought a sharp weather change to heavy rain, high winds and a drop in tem­per­a­ture.
