Swimming hard

BOSTON – Coast Guard Station Merrimack River crewmembers swim 100 yards as part of a semi-annual training requirement off the coast of Newburyport, Mass., July 13, 2011. The training is to get the crew acquainted with the water temperature and check their suits for leaks, practicing different recovery techniques of people in the water, and locating where all their survival equipment is in their vest so that it becomes second nature.
