Escort Boats Needed ($)

Hi everyone, first-time post so hopefully this is the right spot...

We are running the first ever paddleboard race across Lake Ontario this year, and are looking for a number of escort boats to follow paddlers across the lake.

Some details:

Date: September 10th or 11th
Location: Crossing from NOTL or Fifty Point Beach, to Cherry Beach in Toronto (depending on wind).
Time: 7 am. Paddlers will be on the water anywhere from 5 to 8 hrs.
Boats: VHF radio; big enough to carry a 14' board (if necessary)

Each boat will follow a paddler across the lake. A field of 35 elite paddlers is set, and this is going to be an amazing and widely-followed community event.

Compensation will be negotiated with your paddler, but expect to have your gas/travel costs covered, plus some extra for your time... $400 to $600 seems to be the range.

Most paddlers have now started their search for a boat, so please let us know if you are interested in participating.

Email us:

We will add you to our list, and pass on your contact info to our paddlers.
