CHATHAM – The 40th annual Cape Cod Lifesavers Competition took place on Thursday and hundreds of guards throughout the Cape took part at Harding Beach in Chatham.
Ten teams competed in the competition.
Barnstable Recreation Director Patti Machado said she was proud of her winning staffers.
Falmouth Beach Superintendent Donald Hoffer also fielded a team of top staffers, a total of 17 this year.
He said the guards look forward to the competition every year.
“It’s a great thing for the kids. They really look forward to it. And of course they have to practice. They’ve been practicing since the beginning of the summer,” he said.
