INAUGURATION OF NEW LIFE SAVING POST
HRH The Crown Princess, as patron of the Danish Swimming Federation, participates on Monday, 22nd of June 2015 in the inauguration of the new life-saving post on Tversted Strand (beach) in Jylland at 12:00 noon.
During the visit, the Crown Princess among other things, will present the new lifeguard tower at the official inauguration and attend a lifesaving show. During the event, students from Tversted School participate and try out different life-saving exercises.
After the official inauguration of the lifeguard tower the lifesaving show is presented where lifeguards salvage someone in distress, and show how to provide life-saving first-aid. The show will close with tips for safe driving by and in the water.
Students from Tversted School will subsequently visit three exercise stations where they have the opportunity to test roll with a life buoy, see a demonstration in lifesaving first aid as well as learn about sand bank holes, and how to save themselves from them.
TrygFonden Coastal Lifesaving has existed since 1998 as a non-commercial cooperation between Danish Swimming Federation and TrygFonden. The purpose of TrygFonden Coastal Lifesaving is to disseminate safety on Danish beaches and ports and prevent accidents near and in the water.
In 2015, TrygFonden Coastal Lifesaving has 37 lifeguard towers at some of the most popular beaches and sea bathing areas in Denmark with more than 200 specially trained lifeguards manning the lifeguard towers.

Crown Princess Mary's involvement with this is a very natural step.

Australia has 25,760 kilometers (16000 miles) of coastline, and most of the populated areas are close to the beaches. An Australian childhood typically involves water sports and lots of water safety training.

Did we find a report early in the history of this board that Mary has her surf lifesaving certificate? Apparently she was captain of her high school swim team.

IIRC, Mary and her then boyfriend Brent Annels, who was a water polo player, also volunteered/worked as

lifeguards at some point. Or do I remeber this completely wrong?
