Nine lifeguards qualify as IRB crew

20th July 2020


Red Beach
has nine newly-qualified IRB crew members, all of whom were successful in passing the IRB Crewman exam at Muriwai Beach on Sunday 28 June.  And despite a gnarly surf which the west coast threw up to test everyone, all came through with flying colours.

IRB Crewman Awards:   Katrina Hall, Makenna Jones, Renee Lefeber, Keeva Marinthe, Kelly O’Dea, Kate Rogers, Nicolas Santini, Teresa Sell, Hannah Turner. Hearty congratulations.

Congratulations also go to Red Beach IRB instructors Peter Kramer, Jonah Cleminson, and Harry Mellor who trained up and prepared the candidates for the exam.
And the club extends its thanks to Kees Kramer, Brie Downey, and Brodie Campbell who drove the IRBs during the examination.
