Chalkwell lifeguards test revolutionary Rescue Surf Ski.

Chalkwell Lifeguards Club is testing and evaluating a new revolutionary water jet powered Patrol/Rescue Surf Ski for use along the foreshore off Southend.

Test Pilot Paul Harris explained that this new lightweight carbon fibre two stroke water jet engine powered craft has great potential for a speedy response to an emergency incident on the water in The Tames Estuary, and is safe around those in the water as there is no exposed rotating propeller blade.

Lifeguard Clubs around the country are eagerly awaiting the results of Chalkwell Lifeguards’ testing of this craft in the waters off Chalkwell and Westcliff this summer.
