CBSLSC David Cush Meritorious Award Winner

Published: July 03, 2024

Congratulations Riccardo Cornacchia!
Ric received the David Cush Meritorious Trophy that recognises a member who goes above and beyond for their club over a sustained period of time and is the ultimate award to aspire to, being named after the club's Life Governor.
Ric is one of the nicest guys you would ever meet, and he embodies the meaning behind the Dave Cush award. He began his lifesaving journey over 15 years ago in the Nippers program, where he was heavily involved and stayed on for many years, guiding his two children, Lola and Hugo, through nippers.
After nippers, Ric had a smooth transition to the senior club, and his achievements to date are as follows: Patrol Captain for 11 years, Vice Club Captain for 2 years, Trainer, Masters Competitor with many medals, and winner of this year's club's Kennedy Cup - showing how strong an athlete he is.
Thanks for your time and commitment over the years and continuing into the next season as our new Surf Sports officer Ric!
See you in the waves!

Not ready to become part of Coolum Surf Club but still want to help?

It takes a lot of money to run a surf lifesaving club; from the equipment needed on the beach (vehicles, boards, IRBs, first aid kits, defibrillators etc) to administration and training to facilitate patrolling.

So if you can't join us, support us through one of the following options.
