Boat required for Lake Zurich swim

Hi
Sorry to crash in on your forum here, as I don't live in Switzerland. I found you when I did a Google search for the Lake Zurich swim and there was an old post on here about it.

I'm flying to Switzerland from Australia for the Sri Chinmoy Lake Zurich swim on 3 August, which is 26.4km (http://www.srichinmoyraces.org/ch/ve...ltungen/zhlake) I went to download my entry form last week (deadline for entries is 27 June) only to discover that they don't have any support boats left and the only way to enter the swim is to supply your own boat. This is a bit difficult to do from the other side of the world!

I have contacted the organisers to see if there is a wait list for boats but I haven't heard back from them yet and it's only 6 weeks to the swim, so I'm feeling a bit desperate.

Does anyone here have a boat that they could loan / rent to me for the 3rd August? I know it's a bit cheeky to ask as it's my first post here, but my flights are organised and I'm a bit short on ideas.

My husband would be in the support boat and could drive it - it doesn't need to be big and a small engine would be better (so that it can go slow enough for my swimming pace.) The swim starts in Rapperswil at 7am and I expect the swim will take me about 9 - 9.5 hours depending on conditions.

So, would anyone be able to help me please? I would be very grateful.

Thanks again.
Helen

Have you tried calling anyone on page 3 of the race info pdf. ?

Thanks vwild1. It had been a while since I'd looked at that info sheet and had only seen the fax number on page 4. I'll give them a call and see what happens.

Cheers
Helen
