I am putting together an observer training program and kit for an up coming swim and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for what the might like to see included.
...anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
speaking only from English Channel experience, get there early, meet the team be it solo or relay amd talk with them and their support crew.Make them feel at ease, not about to take a high school algebra exam. bring that bag of bits and food items, as they will have forgotten something. Always bring your own set if printed forms never assume anything. without impairing neutrality be part of the swim not some cold addition to the crew manifest....
