Pre-Race Registration: Our Headquarters will be situated at the start/finish area on the west end of Smathers Beach (the Atlantic side). Packet pickup and pre-registration will take place under the tent at Smathers Beach. All applicants must check in at this site from 3:00 p.m. until 5:45 p.m. on Friday, June 23. At the time you register, you will receive your info packet, t-shirt and “goody bag.” Relay teams will receive their orange pennant with your team number at registration. Solo swimmers will receive their numbered pennant at the beach the morning of the swim at the time the swimmer has his/her body marked. This pennant must be placed prominently on your support vessel. If the pennant is not clearly visible on your support craft, you will be disqualified from the event.
Mandatory Pre-Race Meeting: Promptly at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, June 23, 2017, we will begin our pre-race meeting. The meeting will be held in the tent on Smathers Beach (our Headquarters). Information will be given as to rules, the course and other pertinent directions and instructions. Questions will be taken and answered. The goal will be to have all swimmers, kayakers and support crew out of the meeting by 7:15 p.m.
