The swim will start on the beach and depending on numbers will consist of wave starts.
It will be a simple rectangle shaped, 500m, single lap course.
There will be large inflatable sighting buoys marking out the course and powered safety craft overseeing the swim section as well as a host of kayak and paddle boards making sure no-one will be far from assistance.
Wet suits are mandatory for the swim and infomation on where to hire wetsuits from, if you don't have one, will be made available closer to the time.
At the end of the swim you will exit the water and run up the beach (on matting don't worry!) and up over the promenade and up the ramp to the top of the slopes where you will turn right into transition.
From there its out onto the...
Swim route may alter slightly but distance will remain the same.
