Red Beach lifeguards recorded an impressive pass rate at an IRB exam held at Muriwai Beach on Sunday 29 October.
Seven members gained their IRB Drivers award and a further 10 members passed the Crewman exam.
The west coast beach threw up some challenging conditions for the candidates with a messy 2m swell. The Red Beach team handled it all very capably.
The club extends a big ‘thank you’ to IRB instructors Peter Kramer and Michael Smith who provided instruction to the lifeguards during a 12-week training course.
