The club has just taken possession of a Zapcat catamaran rigid inflatable Boat (RIB) kindly donated by the Marin/Delta Jet racing team. The Zapcat will complement the club’s Arancia Inshore Rescue Boat and will be trialled by the club over the next twelve months to assess its suitability for use as surf rescue equipment in the UK. Many thanks to George and his team; we look forward to working with you over the coming year.
There was a a great turn out for the Lions Club New Year’s Day Swim and it was covered by several local and national newspapers. This year the ASLSC offered our services to patrol the “bathing area” as part of the Lions Club risk mitigation measures. I have to admit it was nice to be on patrol will people in the water for a change. Many thanks to Mark for helping out.
