Osprey Bay Kayak & Outdoor Adventures Message Board › Kayak Support for the 24 Mile Tampa Bay Marathon Swim.
The organizers of the 24 Mile Tampa Bay Marathon Swim are looking for people who would like to do kayak support and or powerboat support for this event. You will get paid for doing support for this event.
This event is to be held on April 20th 2013. If you are interested in the kayak support position it is my suggestion that only advanced kayakers participate because this is a 24 mile swim and in essence it will turn out to be a long hard day.
Here is a brief overview on the event....
"The 24 Mile Tampa Bay Marathon Swim starts at the Sunshine Skyway Bridge and ends at Ben T. Davis on West Courtney Campbell Causeway in Tampa in a race that covers the entire length of Tampa Bay. The event is held each year to celebrate Earth Day and the revitalization of Florida's largest estuary and is the longest race that is sanctioned by United States Masters Swimming. Since this event was first staged in 1998, it has drawn competitors from across the United States, Great Britain, Guatemala, Italy, Australia, Dominican Republic, Germany, India, Canada, and the Cayman Islands. DistanceMatters.com is the official website for this event."
If you are interested in participating please contact Ron Collins for further information and to sign up for a support position.
