Canadian Coast Guardsmen triumph in Buoy Tender Olympics

The inter-vessel competition was fierce.

Coast Guard Station Juneau’s annual Buoy Tender Roundup wrapped in a inter-vessel victory for the CCGS Bartlett, beating out USCGC Kukui, USCGC Henry Blake, and the combined Army/Coast Guard diver team.

Events included a tug-of-war, a survival swim relay, a cook-off and others. The competitions were part of the Buoy Tender Olympics, a way for the ship crews to test their skills against each other in a series of games. With the Roundup over, the ships will depart Station Juneau and return to their home ports.
