Salem Sound Swim and Fin, August 23, 2014

SALEM SOUND SWIM AND FIN RACE: http://www.swimandfin.org/

Safety kayakers are needed to monitor swimming races in Salem Harbor. NSPN has a tradition of providing volunteers for this event.

Safety kayakers activities include:
1. patrol a zone
2. identify tired, distressed or disabled swimmers
3. signal a rescue boat
4. offer the swimmer support
5. carry AND use a hand-held radio (we may have a _limited_ number of radios available but kayakers with their own radios are best)

Safety kayakers in two groups this year, early or late, meeting to organize at 7:30am or 8:30am. All races end at 12:30. Post here or PM me for more details and to RSVP. Proceeds to benefit Salem Sound Coastwatch.

This year the agenda is a little different. There is a need for 4 kayakers on an earlier shift for swimmers during a warm up period (meeting 7:30 at Forest River Park), and about 12 kayakers on a later shift for the races (meeting 8:30 at the Palmers Cove Yacht Club). Both Forest River Park and the PCYC are in Salem. The event is Saturday, August 23, 2014 at the Forest River Park.
