Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT - By KRIS DANDO

Ti­tahi Bay Surf Life Sav­ing Club’s Nick Mulc­ahy and Peter Jones are up for na­tional awards this Satur­day.

The pair have been nom­i­nated in the life­guard and vol­un­teer cat­e­gories re­spec­tively, at the Surf Life Sav­ing New Zealand Awards of Ex­cel­lence evening, to be held in Wellington.

The pa­tron of Surf Life Sav­ing New Zealand, Gov­er­nor-Gen­eral Sir Jerry Mateparae, will present the awards. Mulc­ahy is one of nine life­guards from around New Zealand up for life­guard of the year, and Jones – who or­gan­ises much of the ju­nior sec­tion of the Ti­tahi Bay club – will vie with eight oth­ers for the vol­un­teer award.

A res­cue car­ried out by the Ti­tahi Bay life­guards in March, in which two teenage kayak­ers were get­ting blown to­wards rocks in high winds, has also been nom­i­nated for the res­cue of the year award.
