Henderson 09 835 3557 Life saved on 34-day Kiwi odyssey By CARALISE MOORE Home safe: Six lifeguards made it home after circumnavigating the country in inflatable rescue boats. Muriwai lifeguard Jason Harvey is pictured. Six lifeguards set a New Zealand record circumnavigating the country in inflatable rescue boats, and performed a rescue along the way. The team, co-led by Muriwai lifeguards Ash Matuschka and Andrew Lancaster, finished at Auckland Viaduct on Monday after- noon after travelling 5200km in 34 days. They were joined by fellow Muriwai lifesavers Jason Harvey, Blake Ingram and Matt Buswell, and Antony Morgan of Papamoa. It was an awesome way to cele- brate 100 years of surf lifesaving,'' Ash says. On Sunday, we happened to be on a remote beach on the East Coast that we weren't even planning to stop at when a young guy ran up to us saying his girlfriend was stuck in a rip. He couldn't help her and his dad tried and got into a bit of trouble himself.'' Two lifeguards went to her res- cue. By the time we picked her up she was breathing some of her last breaths,'' Ash says. If we hadn't been there she wouldn't have survived. It was a case of being at the right place at the right time. Even just being a part of that made the entire trip worth it.'' The team left Auckland Viaduct on January 5, expecting the 32-leg trip would take 40 days. A motor- home and support crew followed. They averaged eight-hour days at sea but the longest day stretched to 14-and-a-half hours. There were times where we were exhausted,'' Ash says. At times boredom started to set in, so we sang and seemed to man- age it.'' Ash says a memorable moment was being met by hundreds of dolphins while coming into Fiord- land. I've never seen that many in my life. It was like they were saying: Welcome to Fiordland'.'' Another highlight was pulling into a small cove on Stewart Island for lunch. It was a beautiful place and we enjoyed lunch with a sea lion.'' Hospitality from surf clubs around the country blew them away but Ash is now looking forward to sleeping in his own bed.
