Annette Chapman, Vice Captain of Mollymook Surf Lifesaving Club is pleading for swimmers to stay between the red and yellow flags when swimming at the beach. It breaks our hearts when we hear of unnecessary tragedy along the coast, when in most cases, a half hour drive to a patrolled beach offering trained lifesavers and lifeguards are on hand to ensure your family’s safety, and a happy holiday.
South Mollymook Beach is patrolled every day including Christmas Day. From Boxing Day, 26 December 2019, three beaches, Mollymook South, North, and Narrawallee will be patrolled every day of the school holidays.
Thursday 2 January 2020 is the Mollymook Surf Lifesaving Club’s annual door knock fundraiser. Remember; every coin helps. Between 5.00pm-8.00pm, lifesavers will be asking for donations in their collection tins. They will be in uniform and have ID cards.
On 14, 15 and 16 February 2020, Mollymook Surf Lifesaving Club will host the massive Australian Surf Rowers League National Championships. This is a huge and spectacular event with 302 crews from across the nation, competing for the prize.
The famous Mollymook Beach Ocean Swim will be held on 4 April 2020. Mollymook Surf Lifesaving Club is always looking for new members. If you would like to join the Club, get full training in all aspects of ocean and beach safety, just ask the patrol captain on duty to find out what you need to do. It’s a great healthy environment, where you can make new friends and contribute to the local community.
