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 Capital Classic ‘I’m Going Long’ 3.3km swim going ahead safety, the swim will be shortened to a 2km contingency course starting and finishing at the same start location but will not go all the way out to Pt Jerningham Lighthouse. This course suits days when the Capital is hit by a blustery north-westerly wind. If this is the case all competitors will be advised prior by email, text message, on the New Zealand Ocean Swim Series Facebook page and website. The briefing will take part at the same Frank Kitts Park location.
‘Step it Up’ 1000m, ‘Give it a Go’ 500m 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.
