This decision was not taken lightly but is necessary to help to cover: a) the increase in your SLSGB individual affiliation fee for next year (£23 to £25) which we pay to them from your membership cost and covers each members insurance, which is vital and b) our ever increasing running costs of the club to be able to maintain a high level of facilities i.e upkeep of equipment, new equipment, maintenance, training etc. We do also do a lot of fundraising within the Club which helps towards kit, competitions etc. We hope that you will agree the membership, which runs from JANUARY 1st – DECEMBER 31st, is still excellent value for money considering the facilities that can be accessed within the club. The fees are as follows: NIPPERS —- £32.00 JUNIORS —- £40.00 SENIORS —- £50.00 FAMILY MEMBERSHIP —- £140.00 ( 4 family members joining at the same time i.e 2 seniors/2 nippers or 2 seniors/1 nipper/1 junior) CLUB SOCIAL —- £20.00 (not affiliated to SLSGB / NO insurance ) Thankyou for your support and the committee would like to take this opportunity to wish you All A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

RESCUE 2014 – WORLD LIFE SAVING CHAMPIONSHIPS LA GRANDE MOTTE, MONTPELLIER, FRANCE 16th to 28th September

RESCUE 2014 – WORLD LIFE SAVING CHAMPIONSHIPS LA GRANDE MOTTE, MONTPELLIER, FRANCE 16th to 28th September

Hayle Surf Life Saving Club competitors traveled to the South of France to compete in the biennial world life saving championships against a 2,500 strong international field.   The competition was run from the La Grande Motte beach, on the Mediterranean coast south of Montpellier. The conditions however were a home from home for the masters competitors during the first 2 days of beach & ocean events with strong winds pushing a fair wind swell into the beach, more like Cornwall than the Med!   The Masters team delivered some fantastic results especially in the ocean relay events where they were up against strong competition from the French & Australian teams. In the ladies ocean relay final Trish Merrett, Traci Parker & Carol Penberthy skilfully fought their way around a wind & wave swept course to secure the bronze medal. Not to be outdone by the ladies the mens board relay team of Phil Needham, Alan Roberts & Dave Parker later secured bronze in their final. Back on dry land the mens beach sprint relay team of Paul Cottle, Ben Holtaway & Phil Needham put their heads down into the strong wind and stunned their opposition by taking the gold medal and walking away as world champions in one of the last races of the competition. Sprint specialist Maggie Mann took home 2 Gold medals in her age group for the beach flags and beach sprint. Fifty years of running around the sand dunes in Hayle paid off for David Morgan as he won gold in the 1km beach run. Carol Penberthy added gold to her earlier bronze medal...
