We will have waves of swimmers taking part in the event throughout the weekend. The full timetable for the 2024 weekend will be posted online very soon. 

When swimmers complete the entry form, they are asked to choose the day they would like to swim and a time block from the list of options on the entry form.

For example: Saturday 09:30am – 12:30pm

Around 6 weeks prior to the event weekend we will contact all entrants via email to confirm their exact allocated start time within their chosen time block and will give them an option to change it if required.

On the day of the event, the check-in for each wave time will open half an hour before each start time. This is when we ask swimmers to be at the start area in your wetsuit and ready to swim. Swimmers do not need to register at the Information Point if they have their swim hat and timing chip – they can just go straight to the start.

Swimmers will have the chance to get into the water to get used to the temperature before being brought out for a safety briefing 5 minutes before.
