From deck to interior, crew compete in Bluelympics

ADVERTISEMENT

Captains and crew took to duties – but just for fun, camaraderie and competition at Bluewater USA’s Bluelympics, an inaugural event held April 6 in Fort Lauderdale.

A variety of work skills were tested, including knot tying, large fender packing, bed making, spice identification, naming locations on a map, and water events.

First place was awarded to Chef Mercedes Kornfeld and Deckhand Johnny Bruce; second place to First Officer Alice Darley, Deckhand Jared De Vries, and Stew Michelle Finn; and third place to Mate Cezary Zak, Deckhand Abe Vongkhamdy, and Deck/Mate Myles Ribault. Photos by Dorie Cox
