Surface Line Week 2011 Kicks off in San Diego
SAN DIEGO - San Diego's 30th annual Surface Line Week (SLW) kicked-off with the commencement of the sailing competition, Aug. 11.

SLW, a 10-day contest sponsored by Commander, Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet (SURFPAC), will run through Aug 20. This marquee event features a series of activities dedicated to friendly competition in a variety of seamanship and sporting events.

"The sailing competition went great. We have two of our teams competing in the finals today," said Chief Legalman (SW/AW) Josephine E. Williams, Force Legal Leading Chief Petty Officer.

This year, over 2 thousand participants from 30 commands will compete in 38 events, including perennial favorites such as basketball, softball and golf, along with damage control, ship handling and marksmanship.

"I love watching the swim competition," said Yeoman 1st Class (SW/AW) Katherine Voyce, Force Master Chief Executive Assistant, "and I also like the cake decorating competition, because we get to eat the cakes afterward."

Last year, USS Bonhomme Richard (LHD 6) took first place in the overall large command category, USS Howard (DDG 83) claimed the prize for medium commands, and SURFPAC received the small command trophy. All across the waterfront, commands are gearing up to compete for this year's first place trophies.

"I think SURFPAC is going to go out there and do their best," said Williams. "We have been practicing for over a month through command physical training, so I think we are fit and ready to get out there and win."
