Kayaker support needed for swim race. I did this two years ago and may do it again this year. I'm pasting the entire text of the email below.
Good morning everyone,
I am sending a courtesy email to see if any of you from previous Boston Frogman Swims would be interested in support kayaking for our 3rd Annual Swim in commemoration of D-Day on SUNDAY 06 JUNE 2021.
I understand that some of you escorted a specific swimmer in years past, that may not be able to swim this year. However, I’m sure the past two years must have left a lasting impression on you and the support given for the Navy SEAL Foundation that you may be willing to meet and help escort a new swimmer this year.
The success of the event comes down to our safety kayakers, and without your support and eyes in the water, we wouldn’t be able to execute such a tough and cold swim this early in the season. You are all tremendous assets to the BFS and we are truly grateful for the time you have given up to help grow this event.
The BFS will be held at the same location of years past, the Piers Park Sailing Center in East Boston MA. We are currently working to make things much easier for kayakers this year, both access in and out of the water at the launch area. More details to come as we get closer.
As always you will receive a shirt and wristband for food & drink (which will be provided by a food truck this year) right at swim start/finish location at Piers Park.
We appreciate your consideration in and support for the 3rd Annual Boston Frogman Swim and hope to see you there on Sunday June 6 to support the Navy SEAL Foundation and remember the heroes of D-Day!

Please pass the word along to other kayak friends in the area that may be willing to support!
