Paid Support Boat Driver Needed for Lake Pupuke from 22 Jan 2017

Recommended Posts

We are looking for a reliable paid volunteer to be support boat driver to:


~ Man our 5m inflatable ribs and keep a watch on our dragon boat teams as they train each night.

~ Assist in the unlikely event they capsize.

~ Remind them of the Rules of the Road at Seat (all have had formal training).

~ Identify and communicate hazards to the Steerer.

~ Setup and pack down

~ Keep training gear in orderly fashion

~ Report any equipment repair requirements

~ Daily motor flush.


Other than that it's sitting and enjoying the water and sometimes take a coach on board to do a bit of filming.


Teams that train are:

Secondary schools

Breast cancer survivors

Mixed teams

Women's teams

All water lovers and are very social. Safety Operating Procedures are in place, handover will be provided.


Requirements: Must be reliable, with own vehicle with tow bar required and experienced driving ribs along with rules of the road at sea. First aid also an advantage.
