The East Hampton Junior Lifeguard program held its annual two-day tournament at Indian Wells Beach in Amagansett on Saturday and Sunday, August 3-4. The weather was dreary on Saturday, but the competitors, from the program’s three training locations—Montauk, Indian Wells, and Main Beach, were unfazed and on Sunday the sun shone brightly on a perfect surf.
Sunday also started a new tournament tradition: Junior Lifeguard parent events, a run-swim-run and water flags. About 50 parents signed up to help raise money for the programs and get just a small taste of the grueling competition their kids endure. KIM COVELL PHOTOS
