Scenes of the U.S. Coast Guard Buoy Tender Roundup Olympics at Coast Guard Station Juneau, Alaska on August 22, 2018...
  • Top Left - Crewmembers of the Coast Guard Cutter Anthony Petit, homeported in Ketchikan, Alaska, use every ounce of strength in their tug-o-war loss to the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Sycamore.
  • Top Right - A member of the Coast Guard Cutter Sycamore, homeported in Cordova, Alaska, celebrates after taking first place in the tug-o-war competition.
  • Bottom Left - A Coast Guard member competes in the heaving line toss to people requiring assistance in a raft.
  • Bottom Right - A Coast Guard member gasps for air while competing in the survival swim relay.
The Buoy Tender Roundup Olympics builds morale amongst cutter members, while providing a fun alternative to every day training in events such as the tug-o-war, chain pull, survival swim, line toss, and the heat-and-beat.

Crews aboard Coast Guard buoy tenders in Alaska service 1,350 navigational aids along 33,000 miles of coastline while actively participating in search and rescue, environmental protection and law enforcement missions.
