Ian (Rick) Wright OAM – Avalon Beach SLSC

Described as one of the Surf Lifesaving Association’s most forward-thinking individuals, Rick earned Life Membership of Surf Lifesaving NSW in 1989, a testament to his outstanding contributions.

Rich assumed the position of Branch Superintendent, where he played a pivotal role in the examination and instruction of lifesavers across a wide range of qualifications, from Bronze Medallion to resuscitation and power craft.  He consistently sought out special projects, and his leadership was instrumental in forming and guiding special teams at all levels within the SLSA.


Rick was awarded SNB Life Membership in 1988.
