Two minutes is all the time it took for Deckhand Jared Milsom of the 60m Feadship M/Y Minderella to inflate a 48-inch fender and tie on its cover with a bow. With that efficiency and speed, he beat other crew and competitors to win prizes during the Monaco Yacht Show yesterday.

Mike Yorston, director of sales with Aere Marine Group, gathered a costumed cast of pirates and a mermaid to judge the competition where top entrants excelled on their ingenuity to quickly deliver an inflated and properly covered large yacht fender with a Fenda-Sox double-lined cover.

Supporters and a curious crowd gathered in front of the event at Acrew and International Marine Management’s Crew Lounge at La Rascasse. This was the fourth such event hosted by Aere. Previous events were in Newport and at the Palma Yacht Show.

Milsom won variety of prizes including 300 euros in gift certificates for use in Monaco and a bottle of Puerto Rican rum.
