(click for larger version)
This weekend marked the culmination of the seven-week long Junior Lifeguard Program run by the Town of East Hampton. Over 200 kids participated and there were 25 instructors including senior lifeguards and ocean rescue volunteers. After the trainees learned how to swim with the sweep, dolphin dive the waves, pull in a victim with land lines or torpedo and paddle board rescue a victim, the program ended with the highly anticipated Iron Man/Woman competition consisting of a lengthy swim, run, and paddle board race.
