Members of the Ipswich Life Saving Club ended the year with the annual Club Pairs Championship.
With events testing the skills taken aboard during the year, it was an opportunity to display just how far the club members had progressed.
It also presented them with a chance to compete against other classmates and club members.
With a points system reflecting awards held by the competing individuals it meant the youngest members were able to take on those with many more years experience on a level playing field.
After four testing events it was the least experienced pair who were crowned champions.
