And They’re Off! Lifesaving Sport Season Begins

Lifesavers and athletes of all ages will be participating in the upcoming summer season of sport carnivals from Altona to Apollo Bay, South Melbourne to Sorrento, starting this Sunday (5th  November) with the Lorne Surf Boats Carnival.

“Our youngest nippers across the state are working hard towards their very first lifesaving sport competitions and at the other end of the scale the masters will put on a show of their expertise built up over a lifetime of competing,” says LSV Sports Director Rachael Rylance.

“One thing’s for sure, spectators of all events will be guaranteed an exciting display from the first surf boat event at Lorne in November and ending with the junior and senior state championships down the coast at Warrnambool and Apollo Bay in March.”

The beach carnivals will see lifesavers battle it out in the surf and sand in countless events, including beach sprints, beach flags, ski, board races and the iconic ironman and woman, drawing as many as 1000 young participants for the final day of friendly competition.

“Not only are the competitors’ great athletes, but they also know valuable surf lifesaving skills,” says Ms Rylance.
