Join us for an informal gathering of paddlers from 9:00AM-3:00PM to share skills and experiences to support a safe and successful swim race. Come prepared to get wet and have fun-we will practice assisted rescues.
For those new to, or considering kayak swim support for MIMS, please download the safety briefing presentation from last year's race for additional information.
