This route has something for everyone.
The start is in the shallows, direction of swim is clockwise around 4 buoys, finish is in the shallows.
To give you a feel of what longer distance feels like a square course has been demarcated off Sea Point Pavilion.. You have 90 minutes 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 bobber buoys 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.
