The swimming event will be based in the Hamble River along the Warsash shore. Entry into the water will be from the 'Pink Ferry' Hard on the Warsash Shore and competitors will swim upstream to a turning mark depending on the event distance.
The start is a short walk from the Warsash Sailing Club and for this event there will be two distances:
- 1500m distance
- 500m distance
Age categories will be as follows and are to be on the day of the event - 18th June 2016:
- Junior - 12 to 16s (only allowed to enter the 500m)
- Senior - 17 to 39 years old
- Veteran - 40 years and over
Facilities are available at Warsash Sailing Club and nearby car parks. There will be a place to leave a small amount of clothing on the jetty or in the hut, but please do not bring any valuables to this area as there will be no facility for safe keeping. Every swimmer will be given a competition swimming hat and number. Everyone will need to be checked in and out of the water - so please bear this in mind if you decide to get out and not complete the course, as we will have the emergency services looking for you!
There are plenty of chances for medal glory, with medals for both distances, gender and age categories so enter today!
