Boat (IRB) Hull giveaway.  

They will each receive a new IRB, a vital piece of life saving equipment that will increase their capacity to save lives thanks to Ampol. 

This was the third time that Ampol’s national IRB Hull giveaway has been undertaken which gives Surf Life Saving Clubs the chance to win one of two IRBs. This year the competition saw 207 Surf Life Saving Clubs enter with over 620 individual entries.  

SLSA CEO Adam Weir said that the number of entries highlighted the importance and need for this equipment in local communities. 

“Congratulations to the Evans Head-Casino and Batemans Bay SLSCs and thank you to Ampol for continuing to help us power local Surf Life Saving Clubs and supporting our communities,” Weir said. 

“IRBs are critically important equipment for our frontline surf rescue capabilities. They allow our people to act quickly when an issue arises, and they play an important role in many rescues around the country each year. 

“Every Surf Life Saving Club around Australia would benefit from having this equipment, so I am not surprised by the number of entries. Thank you to every club who entered and again to Ampol for providing this valuable equipment and opportunity.” 

Ampol Chief Brand Officer, Jenny O’Regan says,  

 “Our partnership with Surf Life Saving Australia continues to place an important spotlight on Ampol Foundation’s focus of safety and wellbeing within the communities in which we operate. 

“We are proud to oversee the delivery of new IRBs to two deserving Surf Life Saving Clubs in Evans Head and Batemans Bay and wish them all the best for the beach patrol season ahead.”
