Safety boat captains serve in the MR340 for the love of the river and a challenge

Ten safety boats started with the 230 racers Tuesday morning, pulling out from the Kaw Point Park in Kansas City, Kan. Although safety boats are stationed every 20 miles of the race, some will go the whole distance with the racers, ending in St. Charles, Mo. The safety crews will spend 88 hours on the water with their eyes peeled for exhausted, injured or discouraged racers.
