FlameOut 2017

Welcome to FlameOut 2017, a one-day fire-fighting challenge for yacht crew on Oct. 13 in Fort Lauderdale. The event is designed to promote safety and teamwork, and the rules are simple:

1. Teams must be made up of crew from one yacht.
2. At least 4 but no more than 8 crew mates make up a team; at least two team members must be women.
3. All team members must have had, at least, basic fire-fighting training (STCW).

Judging will be done by Resolve Maritime Academy instructors. The timed competition will include six events. Five are fire events:

Timed Interior Attack
Search & Rescue
Dress Out Drill
Extinguisher Drill
Fire Nozzle Accuracy

And one is a vessel docking simulation event

Points will be awarded to the first three finishers in both fire and simulation competitions. The team with the highest total points wins.

Thank you for your interest in FlameOut 2017.
