A high-octane event, inflatable rescue boat (IRB) racing has a large following in Queensland. As competitors from clubs around the state fight it out for surf rescue supremacy.

Aside from the thrills of the competition, the event is a real reinforcement of lifesaving skills. The races are all about simulating rescue situations and testing the abilities of drivers and crew as they’re transferred to a competitive setting.

Ocean Roar is the dedicated IRB competition series, featuring four rounds of competition throughout the season with each round attracting about 300 competitors.

The competition works on a cumulative point-based system with the winning team awarded the Premiership Title at the end of the series.

This event is a popular precursor to the SHARKSKIN QLD IRB Championships, which sees over 300 competitors go head to head in the pinnacle event of the season.

More details to come.
