Here’s what race organizers have to say about our services:

BYLG provided exceptional service during the open water swim portion of our annual triathlon . . . [and] went above and beyond, providing coverage during the swim practice as well as being involved with planning, preparation, and volunteer meetings leading up to the race.  With 750 swimmers participating, it is essential that the swim safety crew is ready for any and all emergencies.  BYLG handled multiple situations in an exemplary fashion, and their training and skills were clearly evident.  Since the event we have received numerous positive comments about BYLG from both volunteers and racers.  Their attention to detail, friendliness, professionalism, and desire to maintain a high level of safety resulted in a great race and we hope to have their services again next year!
