Water Safety Cover
We are a professional, fully insured and qualified water safety cover provider, experienced at working with swim, triathlon and regatta events. Please contact us to discuss your events requirements.
We provide an experienced team of kayakers who have worked together for the last five years providing safety cover at open water swims and triathlon events across both the eastern and southern regions of England.
Our kayakers all hold a minimum of an 8 hour Aquatic First Aid certificate, have completed the British Canoe Union Foundation Safety and Rescue Training course and have kayak skills at BCU 2 Star level or above. Most of our kayakers are also coaches and have done both the Swim Event Safety Award (SESA) and Lifeguard training and so create a network of support for the newer team members helping them to develop. We conduct regular team training with all of our staff to ensure that the necessary skills are fresh in the minds of the team.
The kayak team communicate using both hand signals and radios. This allows the swift recovery of swimmers, if needed, and allows effective communication with each other and the powerboats at all times.
We can also provide powerboats as part of your safety cover. We use RIB’s which are easily transportable. All our drivers hold an RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate or above and are experienced at handling our boats. Our boats have a spotter at all times and are fitted with kill cords to ensure the safety of your competitors.
We can provide either kayaks or powerboats for your event/s or both if needed.
Please contact us if you have any questions or for more information.
