Clifton Circuit Swim

Timed clockwise swim .
Choice of Long (5) ,Medium (3) or Short(1) route.

Challenging yet Fun (without or with a wetsuit)
Participants are affectionately known as ‘The Polarbears

The route:

This route has something for everyone.
The start is in the shallows, direction of swim is clockwise around 4 buoys, finish is in finish chute parallel to the beach..

To give you a feel of what longer distance feels like a square course has been demarcated off 4th beach.. You have 90minutes to see how many laps you can do.. No rocks.. no reefs.. beyond the waves.. 😉

Swim past shallow buoy 5 and continue to shallow buoy 6.

Left-shoulder turn around buoy 6 and aim for the finish chute (parallel to the beach). Timing stops here.

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