At the time you register, you will receive your info packet, t-shirt and “goody bag.”  All Solo swimmers and Relay teams will receive their numbered orange pennants with their number at registration. Then they must place the pennant prominently and securely with duct tape onto their support vessel. If the pennant is not clearly visible on your support craft, you can be disqualified from the event.
