BACKBEACH Ocean Swimming with Sam Sheppard and BREAKFAST at the Club
January 3 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
Meet at the Portsea Clubhouse at 7.45am Sunday morning for open water surf coaching with Sam Sheppard at the back beach.
BYO wetsuit, cap, goggles and pink vest. As this is a club training session, an approved high viz vest must be worn,
Those U14/U15 without their SRC will need to RSVP on this App so we can ensure water safety.
We would like comp team members to stay for breakfast at the club afterwards. BYO food and we can fire up the BBQ if you’d like bacon and eggs. Cutlery and crockery are at the club. We would like to use the opportunity to speak to the team about the upcoming competition season.
Following breakfast and the comp team meeting we would like our proficient comp team members to swim in the Marcus Burke Memorial Swim at 11am. Our own youth team member, Frankie Dever, is a grandchild of Marcus and Frankie is going to be leading the charge to the line. The swim is handicapped and I believe that the girls get a one minute head start on the boys.
If early morning inspection of the Backbeach should look too dangerous, we will post on the app a change of venue. Please check prior to leaving home on Sunday morning.
