Based on last years success, the BOTB 1500m ‘Walk-the-Plank’ swim will be expanded to include up to 150 swimmers. Registration fees are the same as classic 3K swim. Online Registration Opens on February 1st, 2019
With a mid-river start, we will be shuttling swimmers out between 7:00 and 7:45 before the 3K swim start. Entrance for the shuttle boats are on the Able-Sail Dock: directions to be found at Nepean Sailing club during registration. This is a separate start area.
- all participants are asked to bring their own PFD (life jacket) for the shuttles to ensure participation
- a small bag of gear (hat, jacket, re-fillable water bottle) will be useful to enjoy the morning before the swim
At 8:40, the 1500m swimmers will “Walk The Plank” into Britannia Bay. there will be a 5 minute count down to an 8:45 am in water start. You may leave your personal gear on the shuttle boats for transport to BYC for pickup after your swim.
Timing will be provided although there will only be overall awards for this category, no age groups. Swimmers in the 1500m swim will accumulate participation points and overall rank points towards the “BOTB Team Challenge” and the Global Swim Series.
