Since I started getting fit last year, I decided to participate a bit more at the Surf Club. considering I spend 90% of my weekends on the beach I figured I may as well join the Lifesaving part of the club. In order to compete or to take part in beach patrols, I need my Bronze Medallion.

So over the last couple of months I've been studying and practising for this. Tomorrow is the exam! I have to do a written test, an oral one, do a run, swim, run, a CPR test and 2 water rescues. It's one of the water rescues I'm most concerned about. The board rescue means I have to paddle out to the drowning person, hang over the side of the board and give them two rescue breaths, then haul them up on the board and paddle back to shore.

Aside from a short practice at the pool on Wednesday I haven't been on a board for nearly 25 years; I've seen the rescue demonstrated once and practised it once. I think I need you guys to cross your fingers for me! Will you?

I think the worst part of all is that I have to be at the beach at 8.00am - on a Sunday morning!!! I hope I wake up...

I had to do a board rescue for my certification. They're not that bad. Good luck! I'm sure you'll be fantastic!
