March 2015 : The special Commemorative Ribbon which 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.
The ribbon is printed with the names of families and individuals wanting to honour those who served at Gallipoli.
The proceeds from the names on the ribbon have gone towards funding a new surf boat for the Red Beach Surf Life Saving Club.
