Drowning Prevention Week

Drowning Prevention WeekAs this weeks groms coincided with Drowning Prevention Week and flat conditions at Sennen we ran a lifesaving based session.

The session started off with a briefing by Stef (head lifeguard on Sennen) where he talked to them about lifeguarding and showed them the various items of kit that the lifeguards use on a daily basis. The groms then involved themselves in completing board rescues, board races, torpedo tube rescues, swimming races and learnt other basic beach lifesaving techniques.

The session was a big success and all groms seemed to enjoy what they were learning, we will likely repeat a session like this when conditions are not favourable for surfing!
