Can my support person be in a power boat or sea-doo?

No, your support person can only be in a kayak, canoe or SUP (we prefer SUP). There are NO POWER BOATS ALLOWED except for designated volunteer patrol boats.

Also, spectators cannot be near the swimmers if in a motor-powered craft.

Can my support person use a stand up paddleboard (SUP)?

Absolutely! We actually prefer SUP’s over kayaks and canoes. SUP’s have a higher viewpoint, are better in choppy conditions, are not so tippy and can easily be hung onto by a swimmer.

The SUP must adhere to Transport Canada regulations and carry an extra lifejacket for the swimmer. Please refer to the Transport Canada website for more information on stand up paddleboards.

Is a row boat allowed for support?

A row boat is not allowed to be used as a support craft.
