CCNS to Host Coast Guard Night

Tel: 1 (508) 487-1256
Off Race Point Rd. | Meet at Race Point Beach | Provincetown

Aug 27th, 2015 at 6PM
This year marks the 225th anniversary of the U.S. Coast Guard. To honor the agency’s rich past and the vital role it continues to play in saving lives, The drill simulates a practice session for a rescue method that the USLSS utilized when conditions were too rough to send a surf boat to a shipwreck. During the drill, a projectile carrying a rope was fired from a small cannon out to a target in the sand that simulated the mast of a ship. “Victims” on this target—a tall pole that represented the mast of a ship—tied off lines by which a breeches buoy was sent out to the “wreck” to haul one victim at a time to shore. The reenactment is a faithful reproduction of this historic practice session
