Poppy Logo(copy)Red Beach Surf Club’s Commemorative Ribbon, printed with the names of individuals and families wanting to honour those who served at Gallipoli and those who gave their lives in battle following the landing on 25 April 1915, will soon make an historic journey.

The ribbon will be carried aboard the Red Beach surf boat as it makes its way along the Dardanelles, into the Aegean Sea and around the Gallipoli peninsula before coming ashore at a beach close to where the Anzacs landed 100 years ago. Forty-plus surf boats from New Zealand, Australia, Turkey, Britain and France will make the sea journey on two days set aside, 21 & 22 April.

It will be a proud moment for the 10 Red Beach rowers involved in the 70 km row who view the event as a poignant way to carry the Anzac spirit with them all the way to the beach landing.
The proceeds from the names printed on the Ribbon have gone towards funding a new surf boat for the club. It replaces the boat being used for the marathon row which will be gifted to a European surf club at the conclusion of the commemorations.
The ribbon will be presented for display at the Red Beach Surf Life Saving Club on the crew’s return to New Zealand.
