  • IRB training grows (07/06/2015)

    IRB training has had an increase in candidates this year. Our number has swelled to a massive 15 candidates.

    IRB training runsfrom the end of the season to the beginning of the next. In that time IRB Instructors Marc Pulepule and Kieran O'Sullivan teach and subject candidates to a wide range of IRB techniques and conditions. Our instructional team has been boosted by having IRB operators John Tuia, Matthew Davies and Anna McDonnell getting involved both on land and in the sea.

    Obstacles that face IRB candidates being considered for IRB qualifications have been gaining their pre-requisites.

    Following the IRB pathway, pre-requisites that IRB candidates must gain are First Aid and VHF qualifications. Maranui Chief Instructor Marc Pulepule has provided an environment where all candidates have access to gaining these qualifications through our in-house training programme. Maranui will provide First Aid and now VHF in-house.

    Recently Geoff McDonnell has been certified to deliver the VHF programme. Congrats Geoff on becoming Maranui first VHF Instructor of late.

    A big thank you to members/ personnel from behind the scene who helped make this event possible; Frances Russell (QSM, LM), Vanessa Proctor and Woodstock Florist, Sascha Nemet, Pascal Raimbault (photographer), Patricia Kelly, Bronwyn Kelly and Maranui Cafe, the Sports Committee, the Lifeguarding Committee.

    Our Celebration ended with a special presentation to one of our life members; the late Ron Simpson. Ron's legacy lives on through our Nipper programme with money he bequeathed. We heard from George Gallagher (Patron) about all his good work, his love for the junior juniors (as it was known back then in the 1940-50's). This money brought over 20 boards which have contributed to our success at Oceans breaking into the top 10 Clubs in the country. 

    A plaque was presented to the Simpson family; this is to be erected downstairs in the boatshed to mark Ron's generosity and love for Nippers (Junior Juniors).

    We thank him for all he has done for the Club. He will be remembered.
