Lifesaving Info

Gyllyngvase is fully committed to the education and progress of Surf Life Saving in Cornwall and the UK. Although we have only been operating for 8 years, we have qualified over 50 Beach Lifeguards, and many previously/currently working as volunteer or paid lifeguards within the RNLI. Each year we run a number of courses in association with SLSGB and have 2 trainer/assessors within the club. Although we are based in Falmouth, we use a number of different beaches throughout Southwest Cornwall, providing surf education and training as well as improving fitness and swimming techniques.

Lifesaving courses that can be delivered through Gyllngvase SLSC are as follows:

  • SLSGB Beach Lifeguard
  • SLSGB Surf Lifeguard
  • SLSGB Lifeguard Support
  • SLSGB Emergency First Aid 1
  • SLSGB Emergency First Aid 2

We are focused on providing a source of highly trained and skilled Beach Lifeguards to the RNLI Lifeguard service. As a club, we are looking to work with our close relationship with the RNLI and SLSGB to run a club volunteer service throughout the summer months. We also provide Beach Safety Education to a number of local schools and youth groups. To find out more about the RNLI Lifeguard charity follow this linkā€¦
