Umina surf club named Club of the Year

Umina Surf Life Saving Club has been named Surf Life Saving Central Coast's Club of the Year for 2018-19.

More than 370 surf lifesavers from all 15 Central Coast based clubs gathered at Mingara Recreational Club on June 8 for the annual Surf Life Saving Central Coast Awards evening.

Umina Club president Mr Stephen Scahill said he was overjoyed with the announcement and the club's ongoing performance.

"It is a great honour for Umina to win this award."

Club member Bailey Johns was recognised for his outstanding season in the surf with the Young Athlete of the Year Award and Kai Darwin was presented the Young Lifesaver of the Year Award.

Ebony Rayner took out the Female Junior Lifesaver of the Year award.

Harold Marshall was honoured with the Volunteer of the Year Award.

Rounding out Umina's accolades for 2018-19 were a first place finish in the Central Coast Patrol Competition and a third place in the Overall Surf Sports Points tally for the season.

Ocean Beach Surf Life Saving Club was also acknowledged, taking out second place in the Club of the Year.

Club member Mercedes Newton picked up an individual award as Rookie of the Year 2019.

Surf Life Saving Central Coast president Mr Stuart Harvey said: "We have over 8000 volunteer surf club members who do an amazing job supporting the Central Coast community and this season zero lives were lost along our coastline, a statistic which should be celebrated.

"Across the clubs 398 lives were saved, 18,371 preventative actions were made, 1853 First Aid cases attended and 95,572 volunteer patrol hours logged."
