Please be considerate of your fellow athletes and adhere to the guidelines for safer outdoor gatherings. We request that all spectators and athletes please adhere to guidlines for safe social gatherings.
We will be implementing a TIME TRIAL TYPE START this year to assit in limiting large gatherings. Each participant's time will not start until they actually CROSS over the start timing mat. Chip Times for all.
We will be swimming in a counterclockwise rotation. Start will be on the East Side (closest to Street) of the beach. The line will start at the stairs and go back from there. We will start lining up at about 7:30 for the 2.4 mile swim, first come first serve.
Buoys on your left at all times. After the first turn, it is a straight swim to Dawkins Point (sandbar will be quite shallow this year). At that point, turn left and hug the shore all the way back, buoys on your left at all times. The closer to shore you are, the less current you will need to swim against. We always swim WITH the current while out close to the channel.
For 2.4 mile swimmers, after you round the docks and have the beach in site, swim directly towards the MIDDLE of the beach where you will see SSR flags and an exit the water chute to come out, go over the timing mat and start your second loop. Second loop exactly the same as the first loop. At the finish of the second loop (and the finish for ALL 1.2 swimmers), swim directly to the west side finish arch to exit the water and cross the finish timing mats for your finish time. Please proceed quickly through the chute as to not obstruct any other finishers. After finishing, please proceed to the chip removal area and make sure you have your chip and timing strap recovered and returned to us.
Results: We will email you your results as soon as you finish the swim. Grab your cell phone and get your times and check overall places etc.
Places will change continually until the last finisher is in.
We will NOT be doing an award ceremony, or printing results at the event so that we do not promote groups gathering around printed sheets hanging on a wall. Results are ALL ONLINE LIVE. Here is the link if you would like to book mark. https://my.raceresult.com/153295/results
