Triathlon Water Safety

Triathlon water safety from Canoe Trail

Canoe Trail are proud to provide water safety for Triathlon Company Big Cow Events and ran all the their events in 2015 with 8 coaches responsible for safety on the water at one time.

Our safety cover includes provision of paddlers in kayaks (which are quick over the water) as well as stand up paddle boards (SUP’s). Two members of the Canoe Trail Management team have completed the event safety module from British Canoeing as well as having years of experience running events including:

  • Canoe Races
  • Triathlons
  • Disability sport and groups
  • London Boat Show kayaking displays
  • Outdoor Show Rafting and kayaking displays

Canoe Trail work closely with Big Cow Events teams to deliver a seamless operation with radio contact, a powerboat on the water as well as kayaks and SUP’s.

A SUP paddler usually leads the race and laps around the buoys so participants know the route. Our team provide safety cover and equally importantly encouragement and support to the racers.
