Coogee Surf Carnival - Rescue Reel

By GavMc
In the rescue reel competition at Aussie surf carnivals contestants rescue a struggling swimmer from the surf, whilst connected to the shore with a harness, and a rope that winds onto a big drum. This is the drum - the rescue reel.

The whole operation is almost a military procedure - the contestants march along the beach and then the helpers to the rescue swimmer line up to wind the rescue rope first out, and then back in again through the surf.
