Our IRBs (inflatable rescue boat) are an integral part of keeping our waters safe throughout the year. Interested members are trained to use these high profile water craft to aid the club in its water safety requirements, as well as supporting other local Surf Clubs with their competitions and events.
IRBs aren’t always about doing water safety and staying within safe speed limits. Cottesloe rejoined the IRB Racing circuit last winter after more than a decade. This competition is great to watch as a spectator and even better when you’re part of the racing team. You get to put all your IRB Crew and Driver training to the test as you complete a controlled circuit to rescue one or two patients, using several rescue techniques.
