Winkle SLC has cause to celebrate

WHAT an achievement – Winklespruit Surf Lifesaving Club is extremely proud to announce that Kelly Fell has been selected to represent South Africa at the 2017 International Surf Rescue Challenge in New Zealand in November.

This lifesaving competition will see Kelly compete against the best in the world where they are certain that Kelly will become a name to be feared in her selected events, namely beach sprints and flags. This is a fantastic achievement for this young woman and Winklespruit Surf Lifesaving Club.

Another achievement for the club is its 90th anniversary this year. As has been previously communicated, it celebrates being the oldest club in South Africa, along with Warnadoone and Durban Surf. The dinner/dance takes place this Saturday and the response has been great with many old members attending. This will be a night that will be remembered for a long time, as the organising committee has been hard at work planning this event.

This past Sunday saw seven members attend the first lifesaving carnival of the season at Umhlanga Rocks, where some good results were achieved, despite the conditions not being the greatest.

Gareth Hazell and Tyler Main both won the flags event. Gene Prato also had a good day against some top competition. The results of these carnivals are used when selection is made for the KZN Surf Lifesaving teams.

Members are reminded that duties are important and substitutions must be arranged if they are unable to do their duty. Another reminder about subscriptions which are due by the beginning of September so make arrangements to pay.

See you on the beach.
