Great Scottish Swim – Safety Kayakers wanted for Club Fundraising Opportunity
Last year we made about £2000 for the club funds by providing safety kayakers for the Great Scottish Swim. This year we have the opportunity to do this again and hopefully raise another £2000.
The event is taking place on Saturday the 26th of August at Loch Lomond.
The requirements are similar to last year. To be considered for the team kayakers must have at least one of the following qualifications OR previous Great Swim event experience:
Swim Event Safety Award (SESA)
BCU 2 star
BCU Coach Level 1+
Foundation Safety and Rescue Training (FSRT)
On behalf of the club I have offered to provide 20 kayakers. If you are available on 26 August and want to help out with a bit of fundraising please contact Sandy
I will be running FS&RT training courses on Sunday 9 July and also on Sunday 13 August. These dates will provide training opportunities for those that need them, but this is not required if you have attended this event before. However its a great course to do and provides some valuable safety experience for both kayakers and canoeists!
