Kayakers are needed as safety boats for the Oconee Man/Oconee Woman Triathlon. The 1.2 mile swim portion of the event begins at South Cove County Park on Lake Keowee, and kayakers will be positioned along the course to provide alert eyes and ears for swimmers who might need assistance. There will also be lifeguards and rafts with emergency medical personnel. This event is a worthy cause to support, as it raises funds for charity.
We would like to have a coordinator from our group to serve as the contact person for the race organizers. If you are willing to be that person, please comment below.
PFD and whistle are mandatory for all kayaks. The better rigged your boat is for rescue, the more useful you will be to a swimmer in need of a temporary handhold.
Please respond early, so that the triathlon organizers will be able to make their safety plans. Please reply to Charlotte Waters at [masked]
