The Triton is teaming up with AIG marine insurers and Resolve Maritime Academy to host a first-ever firefighting challenge for yacht crew in Fort Lauderdale. Rescheduled from October, this inaugural FlameOut will pit the crews of up to eight yachts against each other in a series of timed events to award the best skilled firefighting crew out there.

Yacht crews will be asked to perform several firefighting tasks that they have learned in training and practice during onboard drills including a dress-out drill, search and rescue, and extinguishing several fires. Captains and engineers will participate in a docking exercise on the simulator. 

All events will be timed and judged by one or more of Resolve’s maritime instructors. Points will be awarded for the first three finishers in each competition. The team with the highest total points will win the FlameOut Cup.

For questions and to sign up, contact Carl Lessard at AIG at carl.lessard@aig.com or +1 858-790-1743.
