Surf Life Saving - Sydney Northern Beaches


Support Ski (RWC) Operators


Rescue Water Craft (RWC) have the ability to provide increased surveillance of our coastline and rapid response to emergencies in high risk or unpatrolled areas. Their speed and manoeuvrability in the surf makes them a vital part of our support services group. Our RWC Operators are highly trained, experienced lifesavers.

SNB Branch runs three RWC services:

Support Ski 1 based at North Palm Beach
Support Ski 2 based at Newport
Support Ski 3 based at Freshwater

The RWC Training Program runs during winter each season. Details on how to apply are distributed via the weekly newsletter in March/April each year.

Applications for the 2019 training program are now OPEN.
