The club operates three Arancia IRBs from the beach at Porthtowan. The IRBs are used to train qualified lifeguards in rescue boat operations.
IRB trainers work closely with colleagues from the RNLI and SLSGB to ensure operating procedures and safety procedures are fully embedded.
Porthtowan IRB crews are available to provide safety cover at SLSGB events in Cornwall. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
The club runs IRB crew and driver courses. Participants must have a valid Surf Lifeguard award achieved through Porthtowan SLSC. Priority is given to our junior members.
The club runs evening safety patrols when the professional guards finish at 6pm on busy summer evenings at Porthtowan
The club partners with St Agnes SLSC, the Flood Rescue Team, SLS Cornwall and St Agnes Lifeboat to maximize experience and processes.
