Eye Candy for Sailors, Part 22

One of RUSSELL’s search and rescue swimmers waits to be deployed in the water during a man overboard drill.


The SAR Swimmer prepares “Oscar” to be heaved onto the forecastle.


The SAR swimmer waits for recovery (and enjoys the Mediterranean).

Wow, that water looks just fine. Nice day for a swim.

I'm so envious. The Med is gorgeous and if you were in the Eastern Med, nice and warm this time of year.

Bootiful water, XO.
Oh what a shame! Looks like you're getting the Silent Treatment from Oscar. Apparently he doesn't like water unless he can stand up in it without fear of drowning. Great to see you back, and I hope posts come on a regular basis once again! Thanks for all you guys do (you do more for me than you'd really know), and God bless you all.
