  • The Training Never Stops



    USCG Training of Ocean Beach in San Francisco

    These 40' Surf Rescue Vessels are designed to perform rescues in dubious conditions,
    and come equipped with two independently sealed motors, so if one get flooded and the engine conks out,
    the other can still be utilized to get crew out of harms way... You might ask why the crew is all outside and not inside?
    Simply because the are water tight and designed to withstand a roll over, and if you were inside during such and event,
    the beating you would take would be merciless!

    All the crewman are strapped in with harnesses and floatation, and during these drills, there is always a USCG shore team with rescue swimmers
    on the beach, PLUS they always practice in pairs....

    The average USCG Crew person does not stay in one place too long, so constantly training is essential to keep crews up to snuff!

      Racing in light conditions can often be boring and frustrating but for the penultimate day of the first ever IMA Maxi European Championship it was anything but – for spectators at least - with significant shifts, occasional shut-downs on a coastal course on a WSW-ENE axis deep into the Bay of Naples to the north of the Sorrentine peninsula.

      After a delay ashore and then on the water, the race for the 21 entries got underway just before 1500 CEST with a short upwind
