Exit points will be manned until all swimmers have passed through.

Swimmers can feed from the kayak or the bank.

Swimmers can swim wet suit or non-wetsuit.

Swimmers are not permitted to use any other propulsion through the water and must complete the course.

Hot drinks and supplies will be provided at the half way feed check point (Storrs Hall).
