NON CPA EVENT : Chester River Swim for LIFE – 26th Anniversary
July 15, 2017 @ 8:00 am
This is a great & fun kayaker’s swim support – held each year by the DCAC Master Swimmers and to support Charity organizations in the County :
Their 150-170 swimmers pledge to swim different distances along the east side of the Chester River shoreline going up river toward the Town and back – a one way distance of 2.5 miles or 5 miles round trip. There are half mile markers along the route -to help guide them- ALL are excellent swimmers – with only a few slower folks doing the distances.
We -volunteers – are there to watch over the swimmers if they need a drink of water or energy goo, keep errant boaters away & occasionally guide them to the next marker along the curving shoreline. This is an easy support – all levels of kayakers are welcome & rec boats & sit on tops & STAND up Paddle boards also work well on the river. BRING your marine radio!
They are a well organized enthusiastic group, with prizes and awards for the contributions gathered – and we as volunteer kayakers all get a great country cooked buffet and a T-SHIRT.
