Volunteer Yacking and Crewing

Open water swimming in the legendary lakes of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and the Eastern Townships of Quebec is growing each year.  All swimmers are REQUIRED to be accompanied by a kayak or SUP.  They are encouraged to bring their own.  But when they can’t, we offer to recruit one for them.  We charge them an extra fee.  We provide kayakers with a stipend, dinners, and free lodging if they need it.  We’ve built a wonderful base of yackers but are always looking for more.

In addition, for In Search of Memphre, our 25 mile international swim the length of Lake Memphremagog, we use 16′ aluminum boats and often have a need for a crew member or a pilot for these boats or for the larger patrol boats.

Here are the dates in 2018 where we are looking to fill slots:

  • June 30 – Son of a Swim – Newport, VT
  • July 17 – In Search of Memphre – Newport, VT
  • July 28 – Kingdom Swim
  • August 11 to 19 – NEK Swim Week (one or more days)
