About the IRB Competition
Driver and crewperson approach a turning buoy, at which point the crewperson enters the water with a rescue tube attaches and swims towards the patient located at another buoy. After securing the patient with the tube, the crewperson tows the patient back to the IRB. Once the patient and crewperson are back in the IRB, the driver heads back to shore to finish.
Driver and crewperson approach two patients in the water, picking up one and returning to shore. The patient exits the boat and the driver rounds a turning point on the beach while the crewperson turns the IRB. The driver restarts the IRB and again proceeds to collect the second patient. The IRB then returns to shore to finish.
Driver and crewperson approach two patients in the water, picking up one and returning to shore. The patient and driver exit the boat while the crewperson turns the IRB. A second crewperson makes their way to assist in turning the IRB, while the first driver tags the second driver. The second crew makes their way out to rescue the second patient and return to shore to finish.
This is the simplest discipline, with the driver and crew heading out to collect a single patient then returning to shore as quickly as possible.
