(a) The aim of the Patrol Competition is to demonstrate how lifesavers work as a team in performing some or all of the skills associated with surf rescue patrol work. Team members in the Patrol Competition must be members of the same club, but not necessarily be from the same club patrol.
Note: Where Manuals or other documents are referenced for the conduct of this event the written word takes precedence over any photographs or diagrams. In addition, when words, photographs or diagrams are “silent” on a process, competitors shall not be penalised for their methodology in completing required actions.
(b) The Patrol Competition includes a number of physical skills, practical and theory tasks involving racing, rescue and/or first aid situations.
