Destinâ€™s Lifeguards Win National Competition
The Destin Beach Safety Lifeguards took the top spot at the 2015 Nautica United States Lifesaving Association National Lifeguard Championships.
The team won their 20-team division during the event held in Daytona Beach. The lifeguards competed in 14 events including beach rescue techniques and relay races focusing on swimming, running, and paddling. For example, one event is called board rescue. It involves one member of the team swimming 120 meters to a designated buoy, signaling and waiting to be picked up by the second member of the team on a board. The both paddle to shore and cross the finish line on the beach with the board.
It was a huge win for the Destin team. Â In the six years of competing, they have placed 2nd, 3rd, or 5th. Congratulations for the first place victory!
