Support Kayakers

Unfortunately, this year we will not be offering the Kayak/Kayaker Service.

If you are a kayaker interested in serving as a support kayaker, please let us know! We will be compiling a list of possible kayakers and, upon request, will supply this list to those swimmers looking for support kayakers. You can then negotiate your own payment terms with the swimmer.

Email Katie Leigh with your name, email address, and phone number to be included on the list.

Please continue reading for your duties.

Your job will require you to provide much needed support to the athlete in any way necessary. You will be his/her only contact for the entire 12.5-mile swim. You will carry his/her food and drink and any additional gear needed. The swimmer is not allowed, at any time, to stand up or even hang on to your kayak. Many of the athletes have trained all year for this momentous event, and they come from all around the U.S. and even overseas. They are a great group of people and you will have a lot of fun being a part of the event. You will finish tired and inspired!
