Congratulations to Greg Davie, Stu Thomson & Patrick Dagassan who successfully completed their IRB crew exam on Saturday! Many thanks to North Steyne SLSC for hosting the exam and naturally to the examiners for taking the lads through their paces! A special thanks also to Rob Pearson for being the rock-solid IRB driver for team Longy in the large easterly swell.

There will still be some IRB training over the remainder of the season, probably one session most weeks on Saturdays before Nippers, so if you are super keen and offer a suitable bribe we might just be able to kick off your training soon! Please contact Rob Pearson ( for any enquiries.
