Land Crew


Land and support crew must not access the Emergency Evacuation points unless directed by a race official to attend to their paddlers.  All land crew are encouraged to meet with their paddlers as they progress down river at the Locks, M100 and MM35 start locations each day.

It is mandatory that competitors have nominated a land crew. The support of land crews and their responsibilities extend far beyond just driving the vehicle from the start to finish each day. This is a very demanding race in the middle of winter so it is important that those supporting competitors are prepared for all eventualities. The race officials are there to ensure everyone has a safe and successful three days. Check your mobile phone in case officials try to contact you if your paddler has pulled out and needs to be picked up. Do ask for help if you are unsure of anything, they can “buddy” you with someone if you don’t know where to go.

  • Be prepared, read the information on hypothermia and be aware of any special medical condition which might affect your paddler.
  • Listen to the race briefings each day, some of the information is for land crew. Make sure your paddler is aware of any changed conditions.
  • Display your copy of the paddler’s boat number clearly in your car.
  • Be at the start on time and make sure you are at the finish with dry clothes when your paddler is due to arrive.
  • Be at checkpoints on time and be aware of the rules about assistance

Assistance
All craft may be assisted by land crew from the water to the closest land. No assistance from non-competing people is permitted, except to:

  • Render first aid.
  • Provide food or drink or dry clothes.
  • Assist with repairs or replacement of equipment.

No exchange or substitution of craft is permitted except according to the rules for Relay Challenge. In the event of capsize, a paddler may receive aid to empty the craft and to regain seating position.

  • In an emergency you will need to be available to pick up your paddler with dry clothes and a warm drink if he/she pulls out. If you will not be
    available for some reason make sure you inform the officials or make arrangements with another ground crew to meet your responsibilities. Emergency evacuation points marked on maps and by signage on main roads.
  • At the end of the day land crew must be responsible for collecting all the paddling gear and the boat number when the competitor comes off the water. Equipment and clothing will need to be checked and in good condition for the race the next day.
  • Land crews should encourage competitors to eat and have a warm drink after paddling; get them into warm clothing as soon as possible.
  • Have any injuries treated by the St John volunteers and have the campsite set up so they can go and rest.

Please note: If you volunteer to drive anyone else’s car you are responsible for that vehicle. Make sure you are insured in the case of an accident. Read the club’s policy on volunteer drivers as outlined in the Policy, Rules and Conditions section.
