Intrepid inflatable journey Coast run: Muriwai lifeguards aim to circumnavigate the country. Organiser Ash Matuschka of Waimauku, left, with team member Andrew Lancaster gear up for the trip. A group of Muriwai lifeguards will push their inflatable rescue boat to its limits early next year. The crew is taking up the challenge to be the first to complete a circum- navigation of New Zealand in an inflatable rescue boat, or IRB. Organiser Ash Matuschka says it will be a chance for lifeguards, surf clubs and all New Zealanders to cel- ebrate 100 years of surf lifesaving. The lifeguards will undertake their voyage in a series of 32 legs starting on January 5. The 40-day trip will cover 5200km of coastline. The longest stretch will be from Fiordland, across Foveaux Strait, around Stewart Island to Bluff, one of the most isolated and difficult stretches of water in the world. At the end of each leg the crew will come to shore, landing at not only the country's most popular surf beaches, but at some of the most remote too. The team will need places to sleep during the trip, whether at the local surf club, on the couch or lounge floor, around the country. Visit www.sixsurflife guards .org.nz.
