This past weekend NSRI’s Volunteer Survival Swimming Instructors taught our Pop Up Survival Swimming Programme to Sea Point Pavilion patrons who wanted to improve their swimming ability. This was the second of a string of planned Pop-up 20-minute lessons at the Sea Point swimming pool which runs from 10 am till 12 noon and are free to patrons of the Pavilion.The aim is to equip all people with 4 basic water survival skills; 1. Breath-control, 2. Orientation, 3. Propulsion (how to get back to safety) and; 4. Extrication (be able to safely help yourself out of the water).Sea Rescue’s Survival Swimming programme is being developed in partnership with Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco's foundation in South Africa (PCMFSA).The next Sea Rescue Pop Up Survival Swimming lesson is at the Sea Point pavilion from 10 am to 12 noon on Saturday 30 November.
