Eastbourne Voluntary Lifeguards have made a splash in Devon.

The team travelled to Milfield Swimming Pool for the Masters Surf Life Saving Championships - the competition that tests the surf lifesaving skills of those over 30 years old.

Eastbourne Voluntary Lifeguards made the trip along with a team of five masters to join the 20 other clubs, predominantly based in the South West of England.

There were some outstanding performances from team who finished 9th out of 20 teams. Tracy Marsh, in her first ever Surf Lifesaving Masters competition, came away with three gold medals in the 40-45 age group, proving you are never too old to start Surf Life Saving.

"It’s wonderful to be able to turn up in the back yard of Surf Life Saving in the UK and get such great results" Garry Cairns, Club Chairman said, "Eastbourne out-performed at lot of the bigger clubs and we're already looking forward to the next big event, which is the beach competition in Holywell Bay Cornwall in mid-August."
