Safety Kayakers & Lifeguards

IRONMAN is back in Weymouth on Sunday 22nd September 2019

IRONMAN is coming back to Weymouth in just a few weeks’ time (Sun 22nd Sept) and we’re currently recruiting the last few safety kayakers and Lifeguards to join our water safety team for the event.

What’s required?

We’re recruiting a team of 40 safety kayakers to support the races on the morning of Sunday 22nd September. The role of the safety kayaker is to supervise the participants as they complete the 1.9km open water swim in Weymouth Bay.

We do ask that kayakers are of a suitable standard to carry out the role, ideally meeting the following criteria:

  • Minimum of 16 years of age
  • Competent paddler – of at least 2 star standard
  • Able to provide your own boat & kit
  • If you hold one of the qualifications listed here it would be an advantage
