Hey, anyone know where to find kayak escorts for the 3 and 10 mile OW swims at Kingdom OW Swim in Vermont (July 2010)?
Able to supply the actual kayak boats themselves however need the escorts themselves to paddle. (Need TWO)

Did hear the event will supply escorts however cost is high PLUS believe they have more request for support than they do actual escorts at this point!

HELP!!!!! Want to sign up soon.
Thanks so much.:D

if you have a travel companion, i believe you could rent a kayak right there for what i thought was a very reasonable price... it was certainly easier than racking my own boat for the 6 hour drive.

the boats they had were very stable, and with such a large field this year, the course will be well marked with swimmers and boats, so even someone with limited experience should be able to provide support.

good luck

Perhaps find a kayak club in the area and contact them to see if they have anyone who would like to escort.
