We have five new lifeguards!

Last month saw three people (Claire, Robbie and Rae) pass their Beach Lifeguard qualification and two (Kaz and Carl) pass their Surf Lifesaver Award. A big well done to all of them! A great way to round off the patrol season.
Unfortunately our weekend patrols are over for this year but we will still be at the hut on Sundays from 12:30.
In the mean time, if there are any problems then call International Rescue and ask for Thunderbirds 1, 2 and 4 ūüėČ

Mark Bragg survived the 50th Annual Liffy Decent International kayak marathon in Dublin this weekend

“It’s a bit like¬†off road stock car racing in kayaks. The race was 18 miles long, has 13 big wiers, several rapids and had 1020 competitors. We managed to stay dryish on 4 of the wiers, the rest we swam on,¬†ripped 2 big holes in the boat, sank,¬†repaired it with sticky insulation tape and limped into the finish¬†– Brilliant – can’t wait till next year. ”

This was the 1st wier, we are in Blue kayak at 2.08 minutes in:

Ok, it doesn’t quite fit the song but we say hat’s off to club member Mark Bragg, who has started an epic journey attempting to kayak around Scotland. Personally, to the the harbour and back is enough for me! Check out his progress below. If anyone is free when he passes Aberdeen, it would be great to give him an escort!
