More Details


Lapper route:

This route has something for everyone. It’s a simple route with multiple conditions depending on the buoy being rounded.
The start is in the shallows, direction of swim is clockwise around 4 buoys, finish is in the shallows between the 2 buoys offset from the square.

Imagine a tropical beach.. you swimming out into the sunset.. Well this is similar.. 😉

Keeping the route buoys on your right shoulder swim out towards Duiker rocks,
At the deep (yellow) Buoy 2 to right and head for the other deep (yellow) Buoy  3
Right shoulder turn and head for the shallow (red) buoy 4
Right shoulder (and you are parallel to the beach) head for the shallow (red) buoy 1.
… Wanna do more? .
.. Yes.. Repeat the route
.. No.. continue past shallow (red) buoy 1 onwards to shallow (yellow) buoy 5.. left shoulder to finish (red) buoy 6

Left-shoulder turn around buoy 5 and aim for the finish buoy 6 in the shallows. Timing stops here.

Collect sequenced finish tag and proceed to the recorder’s desk where your RaceNumber, Name and Category will be taken.
