Rehoboth Beach once again hosted the United States Lifesaving Association’s Mid-Atlantic Regional Championships. The day-long competition July 13 brought more than 300 lifeguards from Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Virginia. Men and women competed in a number of swimming and running events on what turned out to be a perfect beach day.
There was a slight delay in the middle of the competition because the water-bound flags for the landline competition floated off course due to the strong southern current. In the end, things worked out just fine, and competitors showed off why they can handle running and swimming in the unforgiving ocean waters and soft sand.
