Provide kayak support for the Lake George Open Water Swim 7am August 23

Kayakers are needed to patrol the perimeter around the swimmers who will be racing 2.5 k (one loop) 5k (2 loops) and 10k (4 loops) of a course identified by buoys in the bay starting at Hague's town beach. Kayakers will need to stay aware of swimmers and warn away any crafts that may be entering the area. Hague FD, Lake George Coast Guard Aux and the Warren County Sheriff’s Department are providing motorcraft support to the swimmers and kayakers. You may be on the water up to four hours but water/refreshments will be sent around and you can be relieved temporarily if you need a restroom break. Please wear clothing suitable for being on the water on a hot day with the sun coming down. Hats, lotion, shirts, sunglasses, etc. There will be a meeting of the kayak supporters at 7:20 am with the races beginning at 7:45 am. Information about the event and how to sign up to volunteer (and give your size for a free t-shirt!) can be found at Not only do you get to spend a morning on lovely Lake George, you will have already secured a great parking space for an afternoon of paddling the northern end of Lake George.

    I am sorry to miss this event that I have attended for the past three years. Basically all you have to do is float around and provide support to swimmers. It takes place on a breathtaking spot on Lake George...a protected area that is not rough waters.
