The North Entrance Surf Life Saving Club, the youngest on the Central Coast, was formed in 1978.
Col Laing has played an instrumental role in the development and building of the North Entrance Surf Life Saving Club, right from the beginning and continues to do so today.
The Club is on Tuggerah Beach, an exposed south-east to east-facing beach which runs for 8.2km from Pelican Point to Karagi Point, the sand spit that forms on the north side of the natural entrance to Tuggerah Lake.
This area was a quiet backwater until the road from The Entrance to Norah Head was put through in 1970s.
The beach can be accessed from the north on foot from Soldiers Beach, and via road in the new Wyrrabalong National Park, that provides parking and walkways to the beach.
From the south, street access is provided via The Entrance North residential area, at the North Entrance Surf Club, and from the caravan park and park on Karagi Point.
