  • October 4, 2020
    10:00 am - 5:30 pm
10am: meet at Brighton Beach
11am: swim out to and board (2) RHIBS – with all your gear in a WATERPROOF dry bag
make sure – your feed/hydration is secured to a 50 foot rope
you will feed from the boat – every 30min
swim in a POD, between the two boats – follow the lead boat
this is not a race, this is a group swim – have fun, relax, and enjoy!
swim behind or next to the slowest swimmer – the slowest swimmer sets the pace
if, at any time, for any reason, you want to get out and come on board – that is okay!
bring: swimsuit – cap – goggles – sunblock – food – hydration – dry clothes to change into afterwards
look after your swimmer and their needs
on the boat – keep eyes 360 – for approaching boats, ferries, jet skis, flotsam debris in the water, sea life, etc.
take stroke count in between 30min feed breaks
take notes on swimmer log sheet
give your log sheet to me when the swim is complete
SWIMMER SAFETY is our top priority
the swim route follows a high traffic course
listen to and comply with instructions from the boat captain and crew
listen to Sean’s pre-swim safety instructions
on the water – Sean is in charge
please wear a mask, to protect yourself and others, when we cannot maintain safe social distancing
no mask – then no photos, no videos
