TIme Limit Policies
A cutoff time of 55 minutes for the entire swim will be strictly enforced this year. Swimmers who fail to make either cutoff time will be considered disqualified non-finishers. This cutoff time has been established to ensure the safety of swimmers and to ensure we comply by the policy as dictated in our insurance agreement. We certainly do not take great delight in having to enforce this kind of restriction. Swimmers who fail to complete the required distance under the established cutoff time will be visited by a motorized safety craft. Those swimmers will be required to exit the swim immediately.
Definition Of A Wetsuit
Men: Please note that ANY suit that goes above the hip or below the top of the knee cap is considered a BODY SUIT or wetsuit.
Women: Please note that ANY suit that goes below the top of the knee cap and/or extends below the top of the shoulder blade is considered a BODY SUIT or wetsuit.
Swimmers in the age group or elite divisions must wear suits made of porous material; wearing a body suit (a.k.a. legskin) is disqualified. Referees will be at the finish line to be sure this rule is applied.
Team Division Policies
