Our lifeguards have put in some long hours this season ensuring our local public enjoy fun, safe days on the beach. What an awesome summer it’s been! We’ve put away our patrol flags for the 2020/2021 season and now focus our attention on keeping fit in our winter swim training programme. Our motto “Fitter, faster lifeguards save lives”.

 

The Junior club members had their end of season Prize giving on Sunday 28 March, with all Juniors invited down for fun beach games, beach dig, lolly scramble and ice blocks. Big thanks to all our coaches, managers and parents for their ongoing help this season. We were very fortunate to have special guest and Team NZ member, Mike Lee, (part of the team that helped win the Americas Cup recently) award our prize recipients.

Special mention to our clubbies of the year: Harry Mitchell, Nayli Weeraratne, Brodie Huntley, Isabella Josephson, George Bentley, Mahia Stead, Luke Manley, Emily Johansen , Gabrielle France,

Abigail Moxon, Toby Fletcher, Alicia Tuck, Oscar McFarlane and Keisha Kingi for exemplifying the Mairangi Bay Surf Lifesaving spirit of fun, friendship and positive attitudes!

Another successful year, with 43 Rookies completing their Rookie module and ready to sit their lifeguard exam. For several years now Mairangi Bay has graduated more life guards than any other club. Our top Rookie awards went to Ryder Heath for top Sports Person, Brydon Storey for the Peer Cup and Chloe Dowson for top Rookie lifeguard.

Thank you to Jill Bradley for donating two very special trophies to the club this year, the Jill H Bradley Cup for Perseverance. Congratulations to Lucas Forbes and Carmen Selby on receiving this award for their continued persistence and Can Do attitude.
