WILHELMSHAVEN. The team of volunteers of the German Maritime Search and Rescue Service (DGzRS) in Wilhelmshaven has had a new foreman since May. Stephan von Wecheln (r) has taken over the honorary post from Erwin Clausen. Von Wecheln is a trained chemical technician, has been involved in disaster relief and has been a volunteer sea rescuer since 2013. The 46-year-old considered himself well prepared for his task before taking office: “Erwin and I have worked together very closely in the past,” said von Wecheln.
