The club has been asked to provide part of the safety cover for the swimming section of the event. We have said this will be an individual event rarther than a club event. It means an early start on the Sunday morning about 6 ish, however they are willing to paid £45 per head. The event organisers say you must a 2 Star standard paddler.
There is some training being organised, but it seems it is not compulsary. It is a proper BCU/BC approved course which leads to a qualification as a SESA Swim Event Safety Award. For more detail see Mark.
