On Sunday 20th May, a cheery group of club members mustered at the club to get rescue boards, surf ski's and inshore rescue boats on the water. The club’s new fully adjustable double racing ski, which was funded by a previous donation from Rockfish was ready for it’s maiden voyage. Joined by members of the Rockfish team we set out for the paddle down wind to the clock tower. Following a speedy paddle with many photo stops, we congregated on the beach. With time to spare and a crowd of onlookers, we made the most of the time running an impromptu demo. Lifeguards completed a range of rescues on boards and in the inshore rescue boat.
We arrived via the new slipway to receive an incredibly generous donation from Rockfish Exmouth.
Thanks to Rockfish and their customers, who support the club by adding an optional £1 to each bill, we were presented with a cheque with the grand sum of £6,402. This will support the club to serve the local community by providing voluntary lifeguard patrols and life saving training for junior and senior members.
Club members tucked in to some delicious chips, joined by family and friends, before heading off on our paddle back to the club.
We'd like to extend a huge thank you to Rockfish and its customers who have supported the club.
