New lifeboat for JARC with funding from the Bosdet Foundation
by La Baguette Reporter

THE blessing of the first Jersey Aquatic Rescue Club JARC life boat 'Bosdet' took place on 12th June at St. Brelades Church. It had been planned that the service would be conducted on La Corbiere Lighthouse causeway but bad weather forced a last minute change in plans.

'Bosdet' is named after the Bosdet Foundation who helped with the funding. The inshore rescue support boat (similar to the one pictured) will be an essential piece of equipment for JARC to providing safety cover for the clubs and events thay said.

The Club is nearly a decade old has approximately 100 members from age 8 upwards and competes in National and International Life Saving Championships. It prepares future beach and pool lifeguards and provides life guard cover for Jersey Swimming Club events and wide range of other aquatic events including the Bonne Nuit Festival.
