Athletes of the Sprint distance will swim towards the exit from the sea and the athletes competing for the Marathon distance will have to do a second lap before heading to the exit. In case an athlete does not “clear” the buoys as depicted there exists the possibility of a DSQ. Swimmers will be responsible for covering the distance of the 2.5Km or 5Km as described. Water temperature will be measured at race morning and announced 60 min pre -start. Please observe wet suits regulations regarding usage: Age groupers – wet suit usage -based on water temperature.
