The Captain's Cup.

Electronic Support Detachment South Portland, Maine, claims the Captain’s Cup in its first victory since joining the Captain’s Cup Challenge competition in 1998. The Captain’s Cup Challenge was established in 1995 at Marine Safety Office Portland. It was initially a morale/sporting event for the two largest area commands, MSO Portland and Group Portland. As news of the competition spread, other area units requested to be included. Since 1995, the competition has grown in popularity and continues its overall theme of sportsmanship and fun. The competition involves a relay race, basketball, volleyball, horseshoes, tug-of-war and a canoe race.

ESD South Portland identified each team member’s individual strengths and assigned members to specific event teams. This targeted strategy proved to be successful, and after winning a “Sudden Death” volleyball match against Station Portsmouth Harbor — the defending champs — the ESD team went on to clench victory of the Captain’s Cup.
