MadSat Raft Team 

Meet The Team 

Any team is only as good as it's members, and we have some fantastic people involved with MadSat.

The Team can broadly be split into 3 parts - Crew (Those who paddle the Raft), Back-Up (Those who drive us around between start and finish, help prepare the rafts) and Supporters (Anyone willing to give up their time to cheer us on). Each part is as important as the other 2, as without any of them, we wouldn't be able to race.

Here are the 2018 MadSat Raft Team Members with this seasons newbies (new to rafting) shown in yellow highlights...
