Dory practice

Dory practice

Aug. 15, 1968: Santa Monica lifeguards Mike Kent, front, and Capt. Jim Richards practice for a dory race at the 10-day Santa Monica Sports and Arts Festival.

Although results from the dory race were not reported in the Los Angeles Times, lifeguard Mike Kent in January 1969 was part of a 12-man Santa Monica team that captured first place at the seventh annual Lifeguard Winter Games, held at Will Rogers State Beach.

This photo, by former Los Angeles Times staff photographer Ken Dare, was published on the front page of the Westside edition of the Los Angeles Times.
