Tenfoot Swim
Jun 8th, 2018 at 6:02am
 
The Tenfoot swim team have again approached me asking the SC for help - they also asked if we have anyone who would be able to support the race with Kayak safety cover.

So if you have a kayak ? are free on 21st July race start Tenby at 11.30 finish Saundersfoot about 3 hrs later then please let me know and I will pass it on. The swim committee do support those that help and they would be offering a donation to the club after. Last year they bought the SC 2 new radios so gain on both sides.
If you want to join in and dont have a kayak I could put out a kayak loan suggestion to members ? thanks mick

Would a celtic work as a safety boat?

Meeting tomorrow 21st at the sailing club 7pm but if not available I will post the details anyway for those wishing to help - as I said with the RC being involved the Tenfoot swim committee have offered some form of recompense as return for helping

Actions from the Tenfoot Swim mtg this evening - if anyone would like to take part as rescue cover either in a Kayak / Jetski / Rib / Boat then if you have not already done so please email Simon Beard at simonbeard2@hotmail.com - He will then send you details of what is required and you may be put into 1 of 4 teams with a designated colored bib to wear but not confirmed as yet.

Please ensure you let him know you are taking part via interest raised from WBRC. the swim is on 21st July and race start 11.30 Tenby North Beach. Unfortunately due to tides if you are leaving via Saundersfoot harbour and kayaking round I wont be able to give you a lift on the club ribs as we will only be able to leave the harbour by about 11.30am. Phil VHF channel 37 is the one they plan to use.

If you need any more detail then let me know thanks Mick
