BIG SWIM Kayakers

We’re Back to Swim the Strait this July!

Safety Requirements: Every swimmer must be accompanied by a Paddle Canada Level 1 Certified kayaker. It is the responsibility of the swimmer to acquire a qualified kayaker and without one, they will not be permitted to swim. Each kayaker is required to acquire the necessary safety gear, as recommended by Transport Canada. Without this safety gear, the kayaker will not be permitted to paddle leaving their swimmer without a paddler.

Fundraising Requirements: Kayakers are not required to fundraise but we do encourage you to support your swimmers fundraising efforts. All funds go to support Brigadoon Village.

Accommodations: Participants need to book and pay for their own rooms.

Please note that kayakers and swimmers will be required on Saturday, July 22 for safety meetings.

We are always looking for experienced kayakers to play a critical role in supporting our BIG SWIMmers. If you are interested in helping in a BIG way please email WaterOps@givetolive.ca
