The All-Women Lifeguard Tournament takes place at Sandy Hook every summer, weather permitting. Challenges include several aspects of surf-lifeguard work: running, swimming, paddling a surf-rescue board or ocean kayak and rowing a surfboard. Participants represent federal, state and municipal lifeguard systems from five states.
