Crew Selection Criteria
This section helps swimmers select what they need or prefer on their team and helps us match skils and availability to needs.
SoCal-OWSS-Certified (trusted skills)
Own, or Access to Vessel (e.g. kayak including transportation)
Support Equipment (e.g. feeding systems, bowline, headlamp, marine radio, etc.)
Expenses / Tips? Rates are negotiated with your support person(s) based on various factors.
Please compensate folks that take vacation days or travel from out of town with kayaks and equipment - it's the right thing to do and the community is small. Recommendation: $100 deposit for just showing up. Around $250 (total) for own equipment, travel, and exceptional skills.
More stipulations mean a shorter list of available support folks ...
Prior Channel Support
Open Water Race Support
Special Skills (e.g. successfully supported night swims)
Comments: (when & where)
Date of your swim, number of crew needed, and other pertinent information (e.g. which contracted support boat, swim stroke, crew composition, solo or relay, or expected swim duration etc.)
Read the terms in this link carefully before agreeing (check box is considered your signature on the date of submission):
I agree to the terms and conditions
You might require additional crew support, coordination and equipment if you cannot afford to fly in your regular team
I am not from Southern California
Getting you there fast and safely is our #1 priority!
