Blessing of the Fleet’s Survival “Swim Suit” Contest – Not much glamor but a lot of fun!

The Fishermen’s Wives Blessing of the Fleet event played out under surprisingly mostly sunny skies and big smiles from one end of the harbor to the other. In one of the blessing’s events, “survival suits,” nine teams competed for prize money for the best times for suit up, swim and climb into a survival raft. As you can see from the video, getting your body into a very stiff survival suit reminds us of the sailing ship in the bottle technique. But they all did it!

Results:
First Place: Coast Guard Team #1, 49 seconds
Second Place: Fishing Vessel Excalibur, 50 seconds
Third Place: Coast Guard Team #2, 1 minute 5 seconds

Best personal time, men:
First Place: Gabriel Fry, Coast Guard, 38 seconds
Second Place: Brant Sauderland, Coast Guard, 46 seconds

First Place: Brandy Gieger, NOAA, 1 minute
