About Us

Whether it’s a small lake swim, international triathlon with thousands of competitors or an obstacle run with water elements – we can help keep your competitors safe.

We specialise in recruiting, developing and managing local water safety teams for events requiring water safety cover for swimmers, such as triathlons, open water swims and mass participation events.

In recent year’s we’ve looked after a vast array of events & projects, including:

  • Triathlon’s & open water swims
  • SwimRun events
  • Obstacle course races (OCR’s)
  • Corporate challenges involving canoeing / kayaking and/or swimming
  • Sailing regatta’s & international competitions
  • Rowing regatta’s & international competitions
  • International canoeing / kayaking events
  • TV / Film / Advert set safety cover / filming support

We offer a ‘one-stop’ water safety service for event organisers. We manage the whole process; from planning and recruiting through to event day operations and post event debriefs. We recruit and manage the entire team for you, including support paddlers, rescue boats/crews and bank based lifeguards.

We’re able to give event organisers piece of mind that their water safety arrangements are in hand, allowing them to focus on other aspects of their event.


We’re not just about events though…

Whilst event water safety cover makes up the large majority of the work we do, we also provide water safety services for PR shoots/stunts, on TV & film sets and for corporate events.

As well as providing consultancy services to venue operators, producing risk assessments and consulting internationally to promoters and organisers in other parts of the world.

And when we’re not busy with all of that we can often find a bit of time to fit in some social activities with the team!
