Our first day of beach patrols at Secret Harbour is Sunday 18th of October, so it’s time to sign up for your roster for the 2020/21 season. The roster can be found on the patrolling members page on our website or you can click here. Just enter your name on your preferred dates and the spreadsheet will autosave your entry.
We are still short on Patrol & Vice Captains, so if anyone is interested in taking on these important roles, please contact Sam Lowe.
Our Director of Lifesaving, Stuart Reeves has the following update for members:
Firstly the new ATV is rescue ready for the season. Also, we are planning to get drone patrols up and running at Secret Harbour this season. We have not had this capability for a couple of years, but Joe Ford is working on a plan to reintroduce these patrols and is working with SLSWA to commence training of new and experienced operators. We are looking at taking the proven approach used for watercraft training at SHSLSC to first ensure our own club is highly capable, and then extend the offer of training and cooperation to the other clubs in the Peel region.
Joe will have more detail on this in the coming months. This is an opportunity for a wider range of club members to be involved in patrol and water safety duties on the beach.
