Warrington Dolphin's swimming event held in Albert Dock on the Saturday morning. 
Cover is needed from 8:30am until 12 noon. We will have about 50 swimmers and I need to provide safety cover over the length of the course from Salthouse dock through Wapping dock to just pass Queens wharf bridge. Ideally, I need about 10 to 15 kayaks/canoes spread out over the course and we will also have a rib safety boat also on the course.
