Nearly equinox already - where does the year get to? Anyway, have three articles from my mainstream media feeds about "what went right" rather than "what went wrong".

South African sailors rescued from crippled yacht off WA coast after mast breaks by David Weber (ABC Western Australia)

Three South African men have been rescued from their yacht, Jedi 1, which was crippled when the mast broke off. The rescue was performed by the rescue jet Challenger, and the crew of HMAS Parramatta. They're expected to arrive in Albany at some point this afternoon (Monday).

Drone tested by Albany sea rescuers at Salmon Holes set to help in emergencies by Angus Sargent (ABC Western Australia)

A privately acquired drone was tested by the Albany Sea Rescue at the Salmon Holes fishing spot, a place notorious for drownings. The drone is intended to fill in for "spotter" aircraft or helicopters, which aren't readily available in the area.

NSW hospital parking fees to be cut following 14yo's petition by Lily Mayers (ABC New South Wales)

The cost of parking at hospitals in New South Wales is being cut for people who visit hospital more than twice a week, or for more than a week. Instead of being around $200 a week, the cost per week for those people will be capped at $21.20. The changes come into effect from July 1.

So there's my three for the day. If you've spotted an article about what went right, why not share a link to it in the comments and boost the signal?
