To all our wonderful members, I do hope you are all safe, happy and somewhat rested after a busy Christmas Holiday period.  

We have a lot happening at North Steyne in January and it is an action-packed month. We will once again welcome our friends from Warrnambool SLSC who will stay at our Club over the Australia Day week-end. They will be in Manly to compete in the carnivals being held at both Manly and Freshwater.
We will also be hosting two men from Gaza, Palestine so they can learn all about surf lifesaving in the hopes of establishing a Nippers program and a fully-fledged surf lifesaving club there. You will see Mohammed Saleh and Hasan Alhabil on our beach throughout the month and during their stay, they will learn surf lifesaving skills, understand how we run our Nippers program and Club, and absorb everything they can about the surf lifesaving movement and culture. Please see more information about this project here

Once again, the Steyn’d Challenge will be held for our Cadets, and we will be running the surf boat competition as part of Manly Open Carnival. This is one of the biggest surf boat carnivals during the year, and we need your help to make sure it is a success. See the Competition section below for more information.

Finally, our thoughts go out to those impacted by the bushfires. Surf Life Saving Clubs, particularly on the South Coast, have been instrumental in providing essential support to those affected.  We will continue our bushfire appeal during our Sunday BBQs and stand ready to assist where we can.

See you at the beach!

I am pleased to announce we are bringing back the Sunday Patrol Changeover lunch and calling it "Jack's Lunch"  after our Life Member Jack Sutherland, who started it back in his day.  It is our way of saying thank you for giving up your Sundays to patrol at North Steyne. 

In other life-saving news, we would like to congratulate and nominate Molly Parker for our 'Rescue of the Month' Award. 

Recently as Molly walked onto the beach at Dee Why at 5:15pm for rowing training, She witnessed a group of about 8 Korean people in distress just north of the clubhouse. Members of the public on the beach were trying to direct these people back onto the sandbank, along with a man on a stand-up paddleboard and a foamie also helping.

Molly approached offering help and was given a tube to enable her to assist the rescue. After getting all out of the water, there was one woman who had swallowed a lot of water and felt very nauseous.  They placed her in the recovery position and an Ambulance was called.  Molly also called Surfcom to get a duty officer and call out team for access to the club for some oxygen. Philippa Rees Evans and Oscar Cowell (NS Boaties) supported the patient's head and kept her calm while Molly went and met the ambulance and duty officers. The patient remained stable and was transported to Northern Beaches Hospital.

Well Done to Molly and team NS, this is a perfect example of our Surf Life Saving Club at work.

The 10th Adrian Curlewis Twilight Masters event was held at Palm Beach SLSC on Friday, 3rd January.  A fun event with some serious (?) competition for our team from North Steyne, pictured above.  Congratulations to all who participated and thank you for representing our great club.

I am also pleased to announce we are supporting Manly SLSC's Opens Carnival by hosting the Boat Carnival on the Australia Day long weekend. We have a proud tradition in surfboats and this carnival will not only bring healthy competition but will also generate a nice income for our club.

For this to be a success we are calling out to our members to see if you can help out for any time over the two days. Duties will include, setting up and packing down, helping on the BBQ, assisting with running water/food to the beach, and in the First Aid tent etc. This is a great opportunity to showcase our amazing Club and community to the visiting clubs from across the country.

If you would like to volunteer for any part of the weekend, please click here.

Or if you have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to contact
Rob Szewczak or
Damien O’Shannassy.

Nipper News

Nippers attending the Surf Intensive Camp (SIC) in December School Holidays
Nippers is back for 2020! We hope everyone had an enjoyable and moreover safe break given the terrible bushfires in NSW and other states.

We had a fantastic Christmas party on 15th December – our nippers were thrilled to meet Santa Claus, who managed to find time in his busy schedule to visit our Club, meet every nipper and hand out treats for everybody. Santa arrived on the beach courtesy of the North Steyne IRB as the reindeer were unfortunately affected by the bushfire smoke and could not fly that day. There was a great party in the hall afterward which was great fun. Thanks to all the parents who cooked, baked, shopped, served, helped out, set up and cleaned up.

Our under 14 age group attained their Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) at the end of last year and have since been keeping the beach safe with their Patrols and helping out with water safety at nippers and our carnival in December. Our congratulations to the group on their achievement.

Our Nippers team look forward to helping out with our visitors over January, It will be great to share our knowledge with Mo and Hasan about the running of our Nippers program for the Gaza Surf Project.  

Upcoming carnivals are at Narrabeen beach on 12th January and Manly Nats on 19th January.  There is a Surf Sports Intensive Camp at Collaroy Beach on 16th and 17th January. See Team App for details.

See you on the beach!
