Details

Briefing Briefing will take place on the day at the YeAABA Clubhouse Car Park 30 minutes prior to the swim. The briefing will take place outdoors so please ensure you have appropriate warm clothing.
Start On the starters/referees instruction, swimmers should promptly access the water via the harbour slipway or ladder, and line form a line facing up river. Start will be by loud hailer or whistle.
Course This is a point-to-point, up river swim using the flow of the river, on a diagonal course across the river and it's tide-ways, which will take swimmers through one of the first five spans of the Road Bridge at the Fife side, then continues across the bay passing the old Ferry Station at Newport to the slipway at Woodhaven. The line is as straight as the currents and your ability permits. You MUST follow your boat at all times. This swim will be run under YeAABA Club Championship rules.
Finish By touching the slipway at Woodhaven (a red & white finish sign will be displayed). N.B. a swimmer finishing, but missing the touch due to tidal conditions will be accorded with a certificate but no official time or place in the race.
Costumes Costumes must comply with SASA regulations which are the same as FINA in this respect. Open Water Swimwear for both men and women shall not cover the neck, extend past the shoulder, nor shall extend below the ankle. All Open Water swimsuits shall comply with the FINA criteria for materials and approved procedures.
