November Newsletter

Dear Members 

We are well and truly back into the swing of things at North Steyne. It is great to see so many of you back on the beach and thank you for all the hours you have put on patrol or those just helping around the Club already.

It is exciting to see such a great group of Nippers, our largest in several years. Great as well to have our education program in full swing with several groups being trained to obtain their SRC or Bronze. Well done to all our hard working trainers!

We are having our Back to the Beach Party on Saturday, 9 November. This will be an opportunity to enjoy some great food and drink, catch up with friends and meet other members of the Club. We kick off early with some special activities for Nippers and then later roll into dinner, drinks, and dancing. A band will be playing in the hall. Best dressed patrol wins a prize. For more information, please click on the invitation below.

It is going to be a great night and I hope to see you there!

It’s been nice meeting some new members I didn’t know whilst doing proficiencies. The feedback we have been receiving in relation to the new format has been outstanding. 
As November is already here, we will be running a few more proficiency days for the few who haven’t been able to complete this prior to now.

Nippers is back for season 2019-20. North Steyne beach has been a hive of activity with 250+ nippers on Sunday mornings, our SRC group training on Saturday afternoons, & nipper board training on Saturday mornings and Wednesday afternoons. We also have the additional sprint training session with Coach Clayton before Sunday nippers.

It’s great to see so many new faces joining us and so many nippers returning season after season; having fun, always learning something new and improving their skills on the beach and in the water.

Ripper Nippers are Back

Excitement levels were extreme for our Ripper Nippers during an IRB (Inflatable Rescue Boat) inspection!  Our trusty Cadets were helping out with Water Safety, pictured above in their orange safety vests.
North Steyne’s infamous shore dump popped up during the Rippers session and cadets had their hands full ensuring that nobody was hurt or knocked down as the Rippers ran into the surf with their boards.

A fantastic morning as always with a mix of returning Ripper Nippers & newbies.
