2012 WaveJet Ocean Rescue Lifeguard Challenge

WaveJet Propulsion Invites Lifeguard Organizations Send Strongest Paddler to Compete Against the WaveJet Rescue System

• Date and Time: Saturday, July 21, 2012 - 1pm (registrants must be on beach by 12pm for official check-in)

• Location: Narragansett Town Beach, Narragansett, RI

• Details:  In association with the Waterman Eco-Challenge, WaveJet Propulsion is challenging lifeguard and ocean rescue organizations nation-wide to send their best paddler to compete against the WaveJet.  In a mock rescue set-up, paddlers will race to determine who is the best on the beach in getting to a victim and back to shore. The rescue organization who wins the race (excluding the WaveJet rider) will win one (1) WaveJet Rescue System, with an approximate retail value of $4,150.  There is no cash alternative for such prize, and the prize is not transferable.  If the winning lifeguard also beats the WaveJet rider, that lifeguard will receive an additional $500.
