The Logistics

A van will be provided to transport swimmers bags from the start to the finish

Parking is very limited at the start of both swims, the boat club will have a club day and we have the use of their facilities for the start.  Please if parking at the start park on Riddell Road and walk to the start, (it’s not far)

There will be a bus running on a continuous loop from St Heliers where the registration will take place and drop swimmers of at either Peacock St (for the 2.6km swim from Karaka Bay) or Glendowie Road (for the 4km swim from Glendowie Boat Club).

Entry criteria

For the Bays Swim you must have already swum an equivalent distance of 2km in open water.

If you are 12 or under 16, you will need to confirm your parent or guardian consent when you enter.

ACM has the right to decline any applicant if there are significant doubts about the entrant’s ability to complete the course

For slower swimmers we have implemented a policy of transporting swimmers back up to the pack to reduce the spread, if you are asked please assist with this otherwise you will be asked to leave the water.
