Vineyard Swordfish is a longsword team and is located in Martha's Vineyard and Falmouth, Massachusetts.  The longsword is rigid, but not sharp, originally derived from a tanning implement.   Longsword dancing is more stately and deliberate than its more energetic rapper cousin.  Vineyard Swordfish kit (uniform), seen here, consists of white shirt, black knickers, and purple vest.
