Decisions for all swims will be made by the Race Director in conjunction with Surf Life Saving NZ.
‘I’m Going Long’ 3.3km Swim
In the event of weather that prevents the ‘I’m Going Long’ 3.3km swim from being able to cross the Bay safely the swim will move to a smaller 2km triangular course off Paihia Beach. If this decision is made swimmers will be informed first thing on the event morning by email / text and on our website & Facebook page. If conditions change significantly on event day morning, a text message will be sent out to all ‘I’m Going Long’ swimmers and we will have event crew stationed in Russell sending swimmers back to Paihia on our chartered ferries.
‘Give it a Go’ 300m and ‘Banana Boat OceanKids’ 200m
In the event of weather that prevents the swimmers from being able to complete the swim courses safely, the swims maybe altered from the advertised courses to provide the safest and most enjoyable swimming conditions.
