    A message from our President
Patrols start again at
​the end of September
Thursday 26 March

SLSNSW has announced that all beach patrols in NSW have been suspended for the remainder of the 2019-20 season to reduce the risk of patrollers being exposed to Covid-19.  Emergency call-outs will continue as usual. 

The Bermagui Surf Club premises will be closed until further notice.

A message from Bruce McAslan, President of BSLSC

Due to the escalating circumstances around COVID 19 it's important that we keep the welfare of our members as a priority. With that in mind, and in conjunction with guidance from SLSNSW, here is our current status:
-  Same Wave is now cancelled for the season
-  Nippers is cancelled for the season
-  Tathra Branch Carnival is cancelled
Patrols will continue at this stage in order to keep our community and beachgoers safe. Our patrollers will maintain social  distancing advice during patrol and ensure that appropriate PPE is used during medical responses.
-  Emergency call out responses will remain as usual to help keep our locals and visitors safe

Our Annual Presentation night may end up being held a little later in the year once things have a chance to settle down. Stay tuned on this one.

Our Nippers Coordinator, Carlin, said it beautifully yesterday with the words "this is no doubt a final blow, in what has been an incredibly challenging year so far, marred by catastrophic fires and now pandemic. Our close knit surf club team has risen in support of others in our community, whilst we also suffered. For this we should be very proud. Those whose lives have been indelibly changed by the events of this summer, please know that with us, you are safe among friends."

I want to reiterate publicly just how proud I am of our entire team and the way our surf club family has pulled together over the past months. We will come out the other side of this current challenge as well and we'll make time to celebrate together then.

In the meantime, our members and community can stay in touch with official SLSNSW guidance and resources at the following website: https://www.surflifesaving.com.au/resources/coronavirus-covid-19-updates-resources-slsnsw-members
Please stay safe and well in these difficult times.
