How can I find a support boat?
I want to self-plan some long distance swims in my region which will be a substantial distance from shore, therefore I will need motor support for it. Furthermore I also need to practice swimming next to a boat in the open sea which I have completely no experience in it.
I have asked a few marathon swimmers in the city and also a few other people (my scout leaders and also water sport coaches) but no one has any idea about it. The marathon swimmers I asked didn't have these kind of training before. This is my last outstanding problem to self-organise marathon swims where I live.
- How do the people here find support boats when self-organising marathon swims?
- If the pilot is provided, how can I decide if he is experienced enough for me to depend my life on him?
