Keeping Dewey Beaches Safe

Another huge atrribute of Dewey Beach are the 40 plus young men and women who make up the Dewey Beach Patrol - the lifeguard's who watch over our waters daily from memorial day to labor day. These young men and women, most of whom are college students who live in dewey during the summer, spend countless hours training and practicing numerous lifesaving techniques to make sure that beachgoers stay safe in the water and on the beach. Rigorous tryouts are held in march in order to test potential lifeguards strength, stamina, and overall ability to fullfil the job descrition as a member of the Dewey Beach Patrol, more commonly known as DBP. Furthermore, 1st year guards go through an extensive 8 week "Rookie Training" schedule, leading up to the rookie test, in order to become a veternan patrol member. Want to know what it really takes? Read about what a Day in the Life of a DBP lifeguard entails. It's a huge responsibility guarding other peoples lives day in and day out, and that is why these lifeguards are highly respected and considered the pride of Dewey Beach.

The Starboard: not just a bar - a lifestyle.

It's almost impossible to talk about Dewey Beach and not mention The Starboard, the pride of Dewey Beach's night life attraction. In business for over 40 years, the Starboard has ranked among the top 40 bars in the United States. Known for its customer devotion and an anything-goes atmosphere, it's a place where you just feel at home and, with the risk of sounding corny, everybody knows your name. Whether its the world famous build-your-own bloody mary smorgasboard boasting 700 ingredients, or the weekly tradition of Suicide Sundays, or perhaps the fun-loving employees that continuously win the title of Best Bar/Waitstaff in delaware, or perhaps a callobration of them all - something sets this bar above all the rest. On any given Friday or Saturday night during the summer season there will be a line to get in that wraps around the building. But don't worry, for those dedicated and loyal customers that earn themselves a VIP card- there is a special entrance for you. And for those "weekend warriors" who, every weekend, make the journey from Wilmington or Washington D.C. or Baltimore or Virginia, the Starboard is more of a home then a bar. Regardless of where there evening takes them, it is an unspoken understanding that before last call they will end up at "the Board". For those of you who have never experienced it - this post hardly does it any justice... its just simply something you can't put into words. But experience the Starboard just once and you'll feel as if you've been there a thousand times before.

A little introdution

so, who am i and why am i writing about the infamous Dewey Beach? My name is Doug Moore, i am Senior here at the University of Delaware. I was born and raised in Delaware, and have lived here all of my life (minus the 2 years i spent enrolled at West Virginia University before ultimately transfering back... why transfer? i was too far from Dewey!). I have been spending my summers living in Dewey Beach (about 90 miles south of campus) since i was 16 years old, and each summer i enjoy it more and more. Many of you reading this have either experienced it or heard stories about what goes on in this wild vacation town. But, as an insider, a local if you will, you experience a whole different side to Dewey that only enhances your appreciation for this place, which serves as a 3 month break from reality. I plan to let all of you in on the festivities, the annual events, the traditions, and the day-to-day activities that make this place so unique and capture it in a way that those before have tried and failed to succeed.
