Budding lifesavers

Young lifesavers participated in the Plettenberg Bay Nipper Carnival recently and did East London proud.

The East London Surf Life-Saving Club sent 17 of their Nippers (aged under nine to under 13) to the Plettenberg Bay Nipper Carnival last weekend.

As one of eight competing teams from the Garden Route and Port Elizabeth, our Nippers were up against teams boasting over 90 members.

Remarkably the team secured an overall final placing in every age group.

They were: Thandi Bosman (3rd U9), Riley Owen (3rd U10), Janey Wood (3rd U11) and Morgan Owen (3rd U12).

Andrew de Smidt won the week end's premium event; the under 13 Iron Nipper, consisting of a beach run, surf swim, and Malibu board paddle as well as placing second overall.

For fun, exercise and learning an essential life skill, parents are welcome to get their kids involved. Contact Alida Owen on 071 479 8102.
