Photo: DOMINION POST By CARALISE MOORE ' It was an awesome way to celebrate 100 years of surf life saving. ' Ash Matuschka Six lifeguards set a New Zealand record circum- navigating the country in inflatable rescue boats, and performed a rescue along the way. The team, which included leader Ash Matuschka of Waimauku and fellow Muriwai Beach lifeguard Andrew Lancaster, finished at Auckland Viaduct on February 7 after travel- ling 5200km in 34 days. They were joined by Auckland-based Jason Harvey, Blake Ingram, Matt Buswell, and Antony Morgan of Papamoa. It was an awesome way to celebrate 100 years of surf life saving,'' Ash says. The crew even had to do a rescue. On Sunday, we happened to be on a remote beach on the east coast that we weren't even planning to stop at when a young guy ran up to us saying his girlfriend was stuck in a rip,'' he says. He couldn't help her and his dad tried and got into a bit of trouble him- self.'' Two lifeguards went to her rescue. By the time we picked her up she was breathing some of her last breaths,'' Ash says. If we hadn't been there she wouldn't have survived. It was a case of being at the right place at the right time. Just being a part of that made the entire trip worth it.'' The team left the Auckland Viaduct on January 5, expecting the 32-leg trip would take 40 days. A motorhome and support crew followed. They averaged eight- hour days at sea but the longest day stretched to 14-and-a-half. There were times where we were exhaus- ted,'' Ash says. Thankfully there were no serious injuries. We just felt strained being out on the water for so long. At times boredom started to set in, so we sang and seemed to man- age it.'' Ash says a mem- orable moment was being met by hundreds of dolphins while coming into Fiordland. I've never seen that many in my life. It was like they were saying: Welcome to Fiordland'.'' Another highlight was pulling into a small cove on Stewart Island for lunch. It was a beautiful place and we enjoyed lunch with a sea lion. It was so remote.'' Hospitality from surf clubs around the country blew them away. Ash was looking for- ward to his own bed after sleeping in different beds for more than a month.
