The first patrol of the season kicks off on Saturday 18th September for our 115th season at North Steyne.
Jack Watt, Club Captain held a Q&A session on Monday night which enabled a clearer understanding of what is expected from Patrol Captains and their volunteer lifesavers over the upcoming weekends.
Please review the summary below:
