INITIALLY formed just over six years ago, the Bermagui Surf Life Saving Club is still continuing to grow in members and equipment.
Most funds raised by the club have been allocated for the new clubhouse proposed for later this year.
This has meant that competition equipment has been limited or non-existent, and club members having to purchase their equipment if they wanted to train and compete seriously.
Late last year, one of the local businessmen, Bruce Jamieson from Bruce Jamieson Earthworks Bermagui, asked the club captain, Bharvit Kelly, if there was any way that he could help the club out with a donation.
$3,000 later the club now has a competition surf ski, paddle and race board, all thanks to Bruce.
The board has already been used in competition at carnivals and Jill Blacka used the board to win the Over 35 female board event at the recent branch championships at Broulee.
The club and members would like to sincerely thank Bruce for his kind and generous donation to their club.
Sponsorship has also been donated to the Bermagui Surf Boat crews, with Horseshoe Bay Hotel Bermagui, O’Brien’s Hotel Narooma and Kinetix Clothing, Cobargo, all making funds available for the crews during last season.
The boaties are now hoping to secure a sponsor for the purchase of a secondhand late model surfboat, which should see them even more competitive next season.
The Club championships were held recently and it was time for the younger members of the club to star.
Todd Richardson was successful in the Men’s Swim and Board, Noddy Kelly won the Men’s Flags and Sprint and in the Women’s events Jill Blacka won the Board, whilst Carly Black won the Flags, Sprint and Swim.
Despite the end of the patrol/competition season, the club plans to hold a golf club day as well as conduct Advanced Resuscitation Course and IRB driver courses.
Any interested members should contact club secretary, Jacqui Page, on 6493 3664.
