Nantucket Island amateurs plan to provide communications and coordination for the 27th annual Iron Teams Relay on Sunday, June 3, 2007 to benefit the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nantucket.
According to George Allen, N1NBQ, Nantucket RACES Officer, a new communications van will be utilized at the race command point. Hams will also set up at five or six additional locations. “Four of these locations will be at beaches where [the Iron Team participants] will paddle across the harbor to Coatue Beach, run several miles down the beach with 20 pound weights and then swim back across the harbor,” writes N1NBQ. “From there, they will bike the full length of the Island and back.”
