‘Owen Mercer Memorial Patrol Team Efficiency Award’

Patrol 8 Nathan Flint (Captain) Markus Meier-Lindner (Vice Captain) Belinda Elliott Christine Churchill Hamish Bell Max Vercoe Braiden Byrne Bryar Lunny Brendan Neville Bronte Sweeny Georgia Green & Jade Swann

This patrol led the way in how they performed their duties when rostered on patrol. Led by Nathan & Markus they made sure that the team was always vigilant in wearing of patrol uniforms and safety of the community in the water was paramount. There was always a presence of patrol members on the shore line watching over the flagged area, roving patrols were conducted on the unpatrolled areas along Bulli Beach. The beach set up of all equipment was always spot on.
